12/60 Stable approximately 15 metres - south of Leawood House


Stable block. Dated 1711, slightly modified in C19 with addition. Local stone rubble walls with granite quoins and dressings. Hipped slate roof. Symmetrical rectangular plan with central passage which originally may have had loose boxes to either side although the separate access to the right-hand end suggests that end may have had a different use. Loft on the 1st floor. In the C19 the building assumed its present form with new loose box fittings installed in the left-hand side and the part immediately to the right turned into a tack room. Probably at this stage a lean-to was added along the length of the rear wall. 2 storeys. Symmetrical 6-window front of which those on the ground floor are circa early C19 casements divided horizontally into 2 lights each of 18 panes with segmental stone arches above. The 1st floor openings are shuttered internally and there is a loading opening at the centre. Below is the original-segmental headed granite doorway of a surprisingly archaic style for the date. There is a similar doorway at the right-hand end of the building. To the left and right of the loading opening are 2 stone plaques carved with the arms of the Calmady family; the right- hand plaque also bears the inscription 'Hoc Fecit Iosius' Calmady Anno Dom 1711'. At the rear an outshut has been built along the length of the building reusing pieces of worked granite and mullion window heads in its openings. This encloses the back doorway of the passage which has a granite 4-centred arch. Interior: The passage has a granite flagstone and cobbled floor with a central drain running its length and leading from the stables to the left. The stable area to the left is also cobbled and retains its C19 partitions with iron railings at the top which have corner posts with finials. Alternating with these are possibly original columns with moulded capitals. There is also one of these columns in the tack room to the right of the passage suggesting that it originally performed a similar function. This good quality stable is an early example, unaltered since the C19 and still serving its original purpose.
