SJ 3404 WESTBURY C.P. WHITTON LANE (North-west side)

17/132 Stable block and coach house - approximately 12 metres to south-west of Whitton Hall

GV II

Stable block and coach house, now partly garaging. Circa 1756 re- modelling of a C17 building; some C20 alterations. Red brick incorporating timber framed core; plain tile roof. 5 bays. One storey and attic. High plinth to north-west, toothed brick eaves cornice, and parapeted gable ends; central octagonal wooden cupola which has round-arched openings with impost blocks and keystones, large square base, and ogee lead cap with wrought iron weathervane [said to be inscribed "I.T., Esq., 1756" (probably the initials of John Topp II)]. North-east front: 6 segmental-headed blind windows, left-hand one is painted imitation; some inserted C20 wooden casements; wooden forecourt gate post and gate attached to left; square posts with chamfered corners and moulded tops; left-hand corner chamfered up to attic level. Left-hand gable end: wooden 2-light attic case- ment; pair of large boarded coach house doors with segmental head. Stone mounting block attached to right. Rear has been partly re- built in C20; boarded loft door to left; 2 pairs of large boarded doors, left-hand C20 sliding and right-hand with depressed-arched head, various small segmental-headed casements and boarded doors. Interior: remains of C17 timber-framed building including framed wall between first and second bays from north-west with part of a post and an angle brace to north-east, and collar and cambered tie-beam roof with queen struts and V-struts; truss between first and second bays from south- east has honeycomb brickwork and was probably formerly an external gable end; roof with pairs of staggered purlins. The gable end to north-west has a straight joint to left and the south-west front has a joint to right suggesting that the north-east and south-east walls were rebuilt before the rest of the building. The framing suggests that it was formerly a barn and the early C18 barn (q.v.) to the west incorporates some reused timbers which might have come from it. The stable block encloses the south-west side of the forecourt to Whitton Hall (q.v.) and stands opposite the former service block (q.v.). H.E.
