    Default Bradgate Stables (Pic Heavy)


    Hi All,

    Been a while since I've posted anything, but here's set of photos from Bradgate Stables. There isn't much history, besides it somehow survived the demolition of the hall, but now it's in a sorry state!

    There were loads of these, not sure what they are, maybe there was one per stable?

    Lovely place. I've not seen the shot down to the 'sewer' before! Did you stick your head down there?
    Thanks for sharing :)

    Didn't see any, we came down from the north through the woods!

    It wasn't a big chamber, still had water flowing in it though!

    The ring and 'eyebolt' was used to tether the horse via the halter on the head collar when grooming, fitting tack etc. Each stall originally would have had at least one fitted on a wall.
    The stables survived because the Hall was the rateable property - hence its early demise, the stables were classed as 'agricultural buildings' and did not need to be made uninhabitable by removing the roof etc to escape rates etc.
