Audley End Stable Block

  Audley End Stable Block

Audley End, Saffron Walden, Essex

Audley End House, a Grade I listed building, is largely an early 17th-century country house. It is renowned as one of the finest Jacobean houses in England and is in the stewardship of English Heritage.

Stable blocks have been described as the grandest surviving stables of the early 17th century.

The main element of works was removal and reinstallation of lath and plaster ceilings.  Great care was taken in the accurate mortar mix measurements and timed application in between the various coats using heating and humidifying systems, aiding in the correct drying procedure.  Similar procedures were carried out to the internal lime render walls.  On completion, decorative distemper was applied to the walls and ceilings.

All stable partitions and wood panelling was French polished and various areas of panelling were replaced and stained to match existing.

Pointing and structural repairs were carried out in defective areas, a new stone threshold was installed and all ironmongery was overhauled, lubricated and adjusted.

Tea Room

Distemper paint was applied to all walls and ceilings within the tea room area.
