Abstract

In 2015, the National Trust, who own and manage the estate at Dunham Massey, Trafford, Greater Manchester, commissioned a program of historic building survey to investigation and record the eighteenth century stables and carriage house (NGR SJ 734 873). The investigations involved survey and interpretation of the building fabric along with detailed documentary and archive research These investigations acknowledged, but did not examine in detail, the earlier stable building depicted on two separate late seventeenth century ‘birds eye views’ of Dunham Massey by Kip and Knyff and Van Diest. A large stone building with a double pitched roof, which stands in contrast to the other timber framed buildings, was identified as being of significant interest.
