Exposed squared limestone walls having cut stone quoins, cornices, sills and surrounds to openings. Small-pane timber windows having top opening ten-over-fifteen pane casements. Timber battened doors. Limestone carriage arch having ball finials and flanked by niches, leading to eastern yard, with limestone piers to gateway at north side and to western yard. Eastern yard has multiple-bay single-storey outbuilding with carriage arch and six-bay outbuilding with two-storey centre bays.

Appraisal

A complex of outbuildings of the highest quality constructed at the same time as the remodelling of the eighteenth-century Sopwell Hall in the late 1860s and replacing all of the original outbuildings. The buildings retain the majority of their original features and character and are in good condition following recent restoration.
