Stables shown on early 19th century maps including the 1838 Tithe Map, located on flat land north-west of the bridge over the Serpentine Lake. The stables are not shown on Bonner's engraving of 1792 (although they could have been purposefully omitted or concealed by trees which is thought unlikely)nor on the earliest large-scale Ordance Survey map and it is suggested that they were a second phase of stables, between James Templer I's original stables of 1779 and the Duke of Somerset's replacement of the 1840s.
