Stables and kennels to Bradgate House, Bradgate Hill, Groby - Hinckley and Bosworth

Complex of brick stables and kennels built 1856 to accommodate the 7th Earl of Stamford's 47 horses. Vaguely Jacobean style. Largely ruinous before 1988. Now derelict and in very bad condition. Consolidation works completed in the early 2000s but these are now deteriorating. Structural failure is visible at the junction of main tower and courtyard ranges and there is substantial loss of fabric to southern elevation. Uncontrolled plant growth is causing further damage. Historic England has discussed necessary action with the local authority and corporate owner.
