GV II

The former stable court and riding house to Hinton House (qv). Late C18, by Sir John Soane, continued by James Wyatt for Earl Poulett, modified in later C20. Ham stone ashlar, parts carefully carved to look like cobbles; concrete slate roofs behind parapets; ashlar chimney stacks. 'L' plan, 2 storeys. West facade of 9 bays, the end bays set higher. Plinth, cobbled face walling to ground floor and outer bays at first floor level, string courses, battlemented parapets. End bays have 12-pane sashes both levels, the central bays have 6-pane sashes to first floor and 12-pane to ground floors, in plain openings or plain ashlar surrounds when set in 'cobbles'. To lower bay 5 a pair of wide doors in large keystoned architrave under moulded flat hood on large console brackets; new entrances to nos 2 and 3. Rainwater stackheads have Poulett arms, and dates 1791, 1795 and 1910. South elevation of 10 bays to match, with one matching return bay, with 2 upper windows, southwards to Hinton House. Across the north side of the former stable courtyard a battlemented ashlar wall about 4.5 metres high, with plinth and moulded string on north side: this screens C20 garages on south side. All elevations to interior of courtyard modified in late 1960s/early 1970s, but no 7 retains two Gothic revival windows. Interiors not seen but thought to be substantially altered. Range has important group value with Hinton House. (VCH Somerset, Vol IV, 1978, pp41-44).
