Full Description

Continuing east, the former stables, probably c.1870 are opposite the Valley of the Rocks Hotel, stone-built with tuck-pointed brick dressings and a segmental brick arch carriage entrance retaining 19th century painted lettering. [1] Most of the stable buildings are not shown on the Tithe Map, although the building at c. SS 7199 4946 may have been extant at this time. The large courtyard range to the west of the original hotel buildings, now filled in, presumably served this purpose. [2,3]
