GV II

Outbuilding. Late C17/early C18. Brick, mostly Flemish bond, with gabled plain tile roofs. L-plan: the main E-W range incorporates, from the E, a dovecote, stable, smithy and stable, the cross wing extending N from the W end comprising one space for the storage of vehicles; open lofted areas above, that to the cross wing used from at least the C19 as a granary. EXTERIOR: E-W range has blank facade to S, facing onto road, and to N a 2-storey elevation with two C19 plank loft doors and, from left (E), a segmental arched plank door with overlight to dovecote, soldier arch over plank door to stable, brick elliptical-arched doorway (with early C20 2-light window) to former forge and a plank door with overlight to stable. Flight holes in E gable end. Cross-wing has double entry in south elevation and to N gable end, set under segmental arch. INTERIOR: late C19 stalls to stables; hearth to forge; brick nesting boxes in dovecote. E-W range has collar-truss roof with raking side struts, trenched purlins and windbraces. Cross wing has 4-bay queen-strut roof with trenched purlins; steps to first-floor granary. HISTORY: This is a complete and important example of a building associated with the inn trade, built at a critical period of economic growth in post-Restoration England. It is located just to the W of Marlais House and Wordsley House (qv), a former inn of late C17 date. It was a multi-purpose building, incorporating space for the accommodation and servicing of horses and vehicles, in addition to an area for the supply of pigeons to the table and extensive lofted areas which were partly intended for fodder and stable hands etc.
