Working drawings for the stables, December 1790 (1)
Visitors entering the stables court were faced with the south elevation of the north range, consisting of a seven-bay front with a large door and first-floor window set in a blind segmental-arch. The first floor window within this arch has a slight segmental curve as it is contiguous to the surrounding blind arch. The four bays flanking the entrance have partly-glazed semicircular-headed recesses with ordinary rectangular windows aligned above. Single-storey ends occupy the corners of the court. The turreted entrance gate has a coach house on either side of the semicircular-headed entry. As viewed from the interior of the court (drawing 32) the coach house entrances are set within blind semicircular-headed recesses. Over each entrance is a window that, just as in the north range, borders the surrounding arch and thus has a segmental curve.
The 'carpentry to the hayloft' is on the verso of drawing 32. An opening in the floor of the north range indicates the positioning of the staircase or ladder that ascends to the storey (as there is indication of neither in drawings 28 and 29).
