SO 8103 KING'S STANLEY BROAD STREET (south side)

13/4 Court house to north west of Court Farmhouse (previously listed as barn with Court Farmhouse) 28.6.60

GV II* Formerly courthouse, now barn. Late C16. Dressed and squared limestone, mostly coursed; ashlar chimney; stone slate roof. Two-storey with attic. Attached lean-to on east side is not of special interest. East side: central and to right chamfered pointed-arched doorway, central blocked, right with later plank door. Fenestration arranged in chequerboard fashion, all 2-light double chamfered mullioned casements with hoodmoulds. Upper floor window to left is blocked. At outer ends small ground floor single-light serving spiral staircases. North end: parapet gable with finial. Two-light to upper floor, single-light to attic. South end: fenestration in gable end as to north with C17 inserted chamfered doorway having C19 plank stable door. West side: fenestration arranged in chequerboard fashion with 4 ground floor and 2 upper floor openings, all 2-light. Some later alteratons including large raking buttress blocking a ground floor window, and a blocked upper floor window. The other upper floor window enlarged to form loading doorway, now with timber casement. Some fragments of original leading to windows remain, but most have C19 fixed lights. Central ridge-mounted chimney with moulded cap. Interior has stone spiral staircase in corner at each end, that at south end rising to attic, while that at north terminates at upper floor. Central chimney is later insertion as are stone partition walls at mid length; attic remains continuous. Fine 5-bay collar truss roof with arched windbracing to lower tier of purlins, all constructed to joinery quality, all joints being numbered and pegged. Floor beams and joists are also of joinery quality and regularly spaced. This building is probably that recorded to have been used for borough courts, later serving as a gaol in mid C18. The internal features and architectural quality are suggestive of a public use, and it is most likely that it was built as a court house, making it a very rare Cotswold example of this building type.
