MONTACUTE CP THE BOROUGH (North side, off) Quadrangle, about 6 metres south of Montacute House, and walls enclosing car park to south

(formerly listed as outbuildings to south of Montacute House).


GV II Range of buildings and walls adjoining forming quadrangle. C16, modified mid C19. Ham stone, mostly ashlar; Welsh slate monopitch roofs, with safe rooflights. U plan, with ranges of buildings to north and east, walling to south.

North range has throughway, and two four-light hollow-chamfer mullioned windows, one with four-centre arched lights with incised spandrils, no label, the other now with mullion removed and casement inserted: in east range two two-light and two three-light mullioned windows, and three four-centre arched doorways, two moulded, one heavily, and one merely chamfered: south range has two four-light and a single-light windows.

On east face of east range high level windows indicate that this row was formerly two-storey: a new service court for this area designed by Lewis Vulliamy but never built; instead the existing service court was remodelled by 1853, the former buildings being lowered. The walling to the south, enclosing the main car park, appears to have enclosed a more formal garden in 1782: walls about 2.5 metres high in coursed Ham stone rubble, with some parts set higher especially to south; C20 gateways in south and west walls.
