ARUNDEL’S historic Castle Stables, the base for top racehorse trainer John Dunlop’s successful career, seem unlikely ever to reopen.

Instead, 15 months after the shock closure of the loss-making yard, the stables are now set to be converted to housing.

Mr Dunlop’s training business was put into administration in October, 2012, but the stables site belongs to the Norfolk Estate and lies in the shadow of Arundel Castle, home of the Duke of Norfolk.

Since then, efforts to market the stables as a going concern have come to nothing.

Now, the estate wants to convert them into 12 homes, with a further four new houses built on the site.

For the full story, read the Littlehampton Gazette, out from January 23.
