WILTON PARK Washern Grange

4.8.51. I Said to date from circa 1632-1635, rebuilding of an earlier stable block and incorporating a C14 barn which presumably belonged originally to the Abbey. Partly demolished (West Range) in C18. The unified overall treatment said to have been designed by the de Caux brothers in the 1630s. Brick built with stone dressings, plinths, architraves, keys, quoins, coping etc. English bond. North front: 2 bay end pavilions with balustraded parapets and bull's-eye windows over bar and transom casements (mostly lead glazing). Linked by set back 7 bay arcade on banded piers; now blind except for central entrance and 4 smaller openings; band and parapet over with 6 blind oculi above spandrels of arcade parapet with medallion motif repeated inside courtyard (except over West range - demolished but retaining arcade). Modern cottage in north-west corner. South side has projecting coach-house with wide arched entrance and blind oculi in spandrels, and open pediment treatment to gable; mounting block to left; it projects to south with stone and flint chequerwork and brick block cornice. The medieval barn forms the east range. 8 bay arcade in pairs with 3 weathered stone buttresses. 4 doors. Centre left: good panelled doors, upper panels curved. Stone imposts, keys and oculi (open) to parapet. 4 rainwater pipes with lead lions' heads. Tiled roof, coped verge to north, south gable end twisted and warped. 6 buttresses to east side. Interior single span roof, some probably C18 mangers, stone lined walls and pitched brick floor.
