Stable block, now estate office and house, c.1770. Probably by john Carr of York. Ashlar to the front, squared dressed stone to sides and rear, brick to the courtyard and hipped slate roof. On plan the building is square outside and circular inside. Two storeys. The front is of nine bays, symmetrical about the central round-headed entry, which is repeated to either side as a blind arcade, but pierced by windows except in the end bays. The third and seventh bays, break forward slightly under pediments. Square windows above with plain reveals and casements. The rear is also symmetrical and of nine bays, but here the repeated unit is a simple doorway,and the fourth and sixth bays only have segmental-arched entries. Circular breathers are aligned above the four outer doorways, and tripartite windows above the entries. The south side has a stone consoled cornice over its central doorway, which like the one opposite in the courtyard was salvaged from Gledstone Hall, demolished 1928. The courtyard has a continuous arcade of 16 elliptical arches with stone bases and imposts. Simple cambered heads to the pitch holes above. Spur stones at the cardinal points. One bay is filled in to make the front door of the house (1970s) and there is an iron balcony over two adjacent bays. Off the entry passage a stable still retains stone posts, to the stalls. Over the entry there is a square base with a clock,surmounted by a hemispherical dome, ball and weathervane on twelve Doric columns.
