Stable Block to Wynnstay Hall, built in two phases. The first designed and built by Francis and William Smith of Warwick in 1738. The Wynnstay disbursments note that the Smith's received a sum of ú370 payment for their work on the Stables. In 1845-47 a fourth side to the stable courtyard was added to the designs of George Tattersall. The work was carried out by William Cubitt, for which he was paid ú700. The stables were converted in the late C20 for use by a school.


The symmetrical 2-storey, 7-bay, main western elevation of the original Smith stables is of sandstone ashlar with quoins and string course at first floor level; renewed slate roof. Central 3-bays are advanced and pedimented, surmounted by a bell-cupola and weather vane. Modern small-paned glazing in original openings, those to ground floor have Gibbs surrounds as does the central doorway and those to the upper storey have deep architraves. 9-bay left hand return elevation has central carriage arch now partially infilled with a modern door. Similar window surrounds. 2-storey, 3-bay extension to far left part of 1845-47 extension with further rusticated quoins and Gibbs surrounds to ground floor; projecting string course at first floor level. Similar 5-bay right hand return elevation. 1 -storey
9-bay rear elevation with full-length moulded stone string course. Central pedimented entrance bay rises through the full height of the building and the carriage arch has a Gibbs surround with a carved console keystone detail. This leads to a recessed porch enclosing three doorways. 2-symmetrically placed single bay end blocks containing doorways set slightly back from the main facade. Mostly sash glazing with similar surrounds. Internal courtyard has altered red brick elevations brick and the interiors have also been substantially altered although the clock tower workings date from C19.
