The ‘new’ stables on the Dartrey estate built in the 1840s
The ‘new’ stables on the Dartrey estate built in the 1840s
This great building, now privately owned, was designed by the well-known Scottish architect William Burn (1789-1870). He was at the same time building nearby ‘Dartrey Castle’, the Dawson’s new Gothic-style Elizabethan Revival mansion, which was completed in 1846 LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) . These stables replaced H6016 : “A fine Georgian building” – the original Dartrey stables also close by. Once the scene of so much activity of men, horses and the various carriages they drew, it looks forlorn, purposeless, suffering from long term neglect and the effects of time. Dartrey Castle was demolished in 1950 following the withdrawal of the Dawson family, can there be a future for this fine building?
