Stables. Circa 1740, with some later alterations. Slatestone rubble with brick and stone dressings. Hipped slate roofs with ridge tiles and lead rolls to hips. Some ranges have slurried scantle slate roofs. Stacks with brick shafts. Plan: Overall H-plan, with a detached laundry block in the rear yard. To front, there is the central range, with a cartway through the middle; wing to front left and right, enclosed in the front by a wall with gateway at the centre. The rear yard has wing to right and left, with a forge in the rear left wing. The laundry block is set centrally in the rear yard. Exterior: The front wall enclosing the yard is about 3 metres high with granite coping, ramped down at each side to a pair of central square plan granite ashlar piers on plinths with flat caps. The piers have pintles from former gates. The front yard is cobbled and paved. The central range has a gable over a round arch to cartway with keystone; cupola with clock and bell, ogee roof with weathervane. To right and left, single storey range with 2 mullion and transom windows and central plank door with overlight, all openings with cambered brick arches with keystones. The range to front right has 2 carriage doors and a single door with overlight, 2 mullion and transom windows and a plank door to right. To right is the estate workshop. The range to front left has 3 carriage doors, 2 plank doors and central mullion and transom window, with a ventilator over the door to left. The cartway through the centre block has a 2-light window to right. At the rear, the central range has 2 blocked windows to right; the wing to left has 6 door openings of varied widths, small window with shutters to left end; stack with brick shaft to right. The wing to right has 2 doors with central 12-pane light; this is the forge, with a ventilator on the roof ridge above the furnance, 2 cart entrances, 2-light casement, door and ventilator window to right. The detached laundry is of single storey with loft, hipped roof with a stack with a brick shaft at each side and an integral single storey outshut to the rear. The front facing the yard has 2 windows with cambered brick arches with keystones, and a C20 addition to front right. Left and right sides have plank door and 2-pane light. At the rear, to each side of the laundry are a pair of square plan rubble piers, forming 2 gateways to the rear yard, with flat granite caps and pintles from former gates. The rear of the laundry has two 2-light windows in the outshut. The rear of the wing to right has 3 blind doorways, set low; rear of the wing to left has blocked door; all with cambered brick arches with keystones. Interior: In the central range of the stables, the block to left of centre contains loose-boxes, which have name-plates. Boxes have drains and mangers. Saddle racks on the wall. In the rear left range, the forge is complete, with furnace with hood, lead water trough and work bench below the front window; C19 concertina bellows worked by a wooden arm counterbalanced with weights. This is a rare survival, in complete state, of a stables which combines use for carriages, riding and driving horses, farm horses at the rear and estate workshops including the forge. The laundry appears to be contemporary with the stables and formerly contained boiling coppers. This is a good example of a stable which is symmetrically planned, with the higher status uses at the front and farm uses behind.
