SE 35 SW FOLLIFOOT RUDDING LANE (east side, off) 4/14 Stables, wall linking stables and house and 8.3.52 garden (formerly listed under Rudding Park House and Follifoot gateway)


Remains of former stable block, now stores. 1805-24 with alterations 1950- 71. For the Honourable William Gordon and Sir Joseph Radcliffe, completed by R D Chantrell, and alterations by Claude Phillimore for Captain Everard Radcliffe. Coursed squared gritstone, Westmorland slate roof. Single storey, 2 ranges: a tall 3-bay block to west and a lower block at right- angles, to south. Main block: central projecting bay with wide central door with window of 24 panes above, flanked by small-paned sash windows with flat arches. Eaves cornice and blocking course. Hipped roof. Central bay surmounted by clock and bell-cote with lead roof. Flat-roofed bay to right has round-arched opening with C20 double board doors. South block: central round-arched opening with C20 double board doors and triangular pediment. Board door left, window and door with overlight to right. Ashlar copings to outshut roof left, and central pediment. Interiors not inspected. The south range gave access to glass houses which stood against the south wall, demolished since 1966. An arched building, probably a coach house, was standing on the north side of the stable yard in 1949 but was demolished 1950-1960 when a large service block was taken down between the house and stables. The coach house appears to have been rebuilt as a garden shelter on the south side of the wall linking the stables with the house, and the 4 sashes with glazing bars in this wall are the remains of the ground floor of the 2-storey service block. A mid-C20 single-storey range, not of special interest, now stands against the north side of the wall. Rudding Park was bought by Sir Joseph Radcliffe in 1824 and his architect, R D Chantrell (designer of Leeds Parish Church) completed the building, including the service range on the west side of the house. Captain Sir Everard Radcliffe began to redevelop the buildings in 1945, and by 1972 when the property was sold, the service block had been reduced to a screen wall, and the north stable block was transferred to the south side of the wall as a garden room. The architect involved was Mr Claude Phillimore. A G L Hellyer, "A New Garden in a Reptonian Setting. Rudding Park, Yorkshire," Country Life, June 24th 1971, pp 1592-1594.
