GV II*

Stable block. Circa 1691 probably to designs by Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661-1736) for James Forrester (d.1696), cupola removed in C19. Red and grey brick 2 storeyed stable block, the roof tiled and with one large hip and 2 small ones at the rear. The front has a parapet, returned on the W. side, and the centre breaks forward slightly under a small pedimented gable and contains the central archway and a clock in the gable, there are rusticated quoins to the angles and the centre has chequer brickwork. The ground floor windows at each end of the front have a circular recess above, both enclosed within an arched recess. The building contains 3 loose boxes in the W part and a harness room and staircase to the upper floor in the centre (the E part has been converted to a large garagespace). Theloose boxes, harness room and staircase have original wood door of 8 panels, double doors to the harness room. This building has greater architectural quality than is usual for a stable building of this size, and was complementary to the earlier house, completed c1690 now destroyed and replaced by a 1930s building.The stable block appears to have resulted from the partial rebuilding of older buildings and the addition of a formal 2-storeys facade on the S front and W end. (Colvin (1978) 402: Kerry Downes Hawksmoor (1969) 27: Hine RL Relics of an Uncommon Attorney (1951) Ch 1).
