Grade II: Old Stables at Ingestre Hall to south of the Church

Old Stables        
    The Old Stables were built in the late 17th century of brick with rusticated quoins and tiled roofs. There are two storeys and casement windows. There are through round headed archways on the west and south sides leading to an internal courtyard, although the arch on the west side is now blocked up. The Stables were converted to 7 residential properties in the 1970s.

Grade II; Stables at Ingestre Hall to east of Old Stables

   The new stables were designed by John Birch and built in 1885 by the 20th Earl of Shrewsbury to house his large collection of polo ponies and carriage horses. They provided stabling for 60 horses. The south side was originally the coach house. Many of the fine collection of coaches and carriages were given to the County Museum at Shugborough.
   The impressive entrance gateway under the north entrance tower with domed top, leads to an internal courtyard. The two storey buildings are of brick with stone dressings, slate roofs and stone mullioned windows. There is a Porte cochere in the south range. 
   The buildings are currently the home of Ingestre Riding Stables.

Grade II: Ingestre Home Farm

Ingestre Home Farmhouse   Ingestre Home Farm is not shown on Thomas Sykes Survey of 1789, and a map of 1802 only lists Dog kennel Gate at this site, although a building is shown on the farm site. At this time the Home Farm was probably on the site now occupied by Ingestre Sawmills, behind the Dower House and Little Ingestre. 
    Ingestre Home Farm has the typical roof slopes and brickbuilt design of the period, e.g. as found at Shugborough Home Farm nearby.
