History

Built by 1886. Given to the University of Wales in 1960, and now forming offices and reception area of University conference and study centre.

Exterior

The stable block is roughly square in plan and ranged around a central courtyard. Brick with slate roofs. The 2-storey entrance front faces E and has a 3-window range either side of a central gable with fretted barge boards and pendant finial. To L and R are half dormers with similar barge boards. Both storeys have cross windows (to the R in the lower storey with thin glazing bars incorporating casements) beneath flat brick arches with exaggerated splays. The central gable has polygonal shafts with stone capitals and a keyed depressed segmental arch and wooden double doors. Above is a 3-light mullioned and transomed window. Inside the gateway are rebates for the doors and stone paving. The rear elevation has similar details to the front. The N block is 2-storey. To the yard it has 6 openings under depressed segmental arches, one of which has an original panelled door (the remainder are glazed and infilled). To the R is a round-headed doorway leading to a stone stair. The S block is single storey and has 3 windows and 3 former windows enlarged to doorways, all under flat arches similar to entrance range. A doorway under a depressed segmental head is to the L. The 2-storey W range has similar arched openings (now glazed and with plinths added) and cross window similar to the N and entrance ranges; the central bay is converted late C20 to a reception area. On the exterior elevations the W and S elevations have cross windows, the N range has some original but mainly inserted windows. The courtyard is paved with stone blocks with drains running from the angles to the centre in a saltire-cross pattern.

Interior

Not accessible at the time of inspection (July-August 1996).
