Stable block, Charlton Park Estate
Stable block, Charlton Park Estate
Grade II listed late 18th Century stable block (possibly built in 1772-6 by the younger Matthew Brettingham when he was working on Charlton Park House). Built of Cotswold stone, the stable block is grouped around four sides of a courtyard, with the south-east range (seen here to the right) forming the rear wall of Andover House and the Estate Office. The ranges to the north-west and north-east (the latter seen here on the left) have had their stone tiles replaced with concrete ones. There are round-arched, pedimented entrances to all sides except the south-east (seen here on the right). There is round-arched arcading to the inner courtyard walls, which is blocked on all sides except for the north-west, which has 2-leaf plank doors to the stables within. There is a bell turret on the ridge of south-east wing with clocks on its south-east and north-west faces. LinkExternal link
