The north range of Green Court is commonly known as the King’s Stable and, viewed from Green Court, is ostensibly similar to the ranges of the west side. This range is significantly different, however, principally as a result of being terraced into rising ground and is accessed from Stable Court to the north.

It is furnished with a high, semi-basement level, the floor of which is some 2m below the ground level of the Green Court; this lower level stands 4.6m high from floor to the underside of the first floor, which is thus located some 2.6m above the level of Green Court. Thus it can be seen from that the floor levels have little relation to the Green Court itself, and the ‘ground floor’ fenestration to the southern elevation is thus non-functional; all but the western windows, which light the modern toilet facilities introduced at the level of Green Court, are fully or partly blind, being blocked in brick immediately behind the glazing. Other differences apparent in the fabric of this range include the nature of the roof structure and the location of chimney stacks, which are set within the north wall as opposed to being centrally within the range. The southern wall of the range extends westwards as far as the main east front, forming an internal partition wall within the north-west range.
