Cresswell Hall Stable Block

Building In Cresswell, Northumberland

A ruined stable block of the once Cresswell Hall.

What you see here is the ruins of the stable block that belonged to Cresswell Hall.

The hall itself was built between 1821 and 1825 by London architect John Shaw and was constructed of sandstone from nearby quarries. The hall boasted a conservatory of exotic plants, avenues of evergreen shrubs and even a miniature railway!

There was also a rockery that was created using the jaw bone of a whale that was stranded at Lynemouth.

Unfortunately the hall was found to have structural faults and was eventually demolished sometime after 1938.

In nearby Hall Wood, the stable block was built shortly after the hall in 1829 and still has some of its arcading standing.

The round indentations were apparently where circular holders for hay bails were placed. Shame about all the graffiti though.

There is also a curved wall just outside of the stable block.

If you head out on to the road, you can see what would have been the original entrance to the hall.

Pretty spectacular from above too, hidden in the woods just along from Cresswell Pele Tower.

And a quick up and down from Red5 to finish off.

Careful in the blocks as there is a deep well and lots of nettles too!

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
