The Old Stables, Aston House, Aston

I have just asked if there are any surviving pictures of this building when it was still the stables of Aston House, near Stevenage, which has now been demolished. The stables have been preserved and converted to residential use and is now known as the Clock House.  

When it was listed (Grade II) in 1948 it was described as follows:
Late C17 or early C18. Flemish band brickwork with red stretchers, grey headers, red cutter brick band quoins, window arches. Large moulded brick cornice. Hipped tiled roof behind parapet. Central wooden clock turret astride roof ridge carrying octagonal arcaded cupola and wrought iron weather vane. 1st floor 7 windows, 4 blocked circular, 3 oval. 4 ground floor round headed windows. Modern doorway on right.
If you have any old photographs of this building (or know where some can be found) please let me know.
