ST03SE BROMPTON RALPH CP

6/1 Manor Farmhouse, gatepiers, walls and railings returned around forecourt -

GV II

Farmhouse. Mid C17, enlarged c1720, altered internally mid C19. Random rubble faced with English bond brickwork in original block, irregular Flemish bond in south-west addition, slate roofs, hipped at west end, C19 rebuilt stacks, clustered on original range. Plan: 3-cell and cross passage facing west, southern end rebuilt when west wing added and stair inserted at junction, entrance resited in angle, outshot in north-east corner. Entrance front 2 storeys, 1:2 bays left, 5 bays right, north range left first floor 3-light C19 casement right, ground floor depressed arched brick voussoirs with keystones engaging dentil aoulded brick string course interrupted by inserted C19 doorway, end right good shell-hood porch with 8-panel double door; there seems to have been some rebuilding of the wall in bay left. West range to right, aoulded cornice, first floor outer bays and centre blocked, two 12-pane sash windows surviving, ground floor left C19 3-light casement, 2 plank doors end bay right. South front, hipped roof, aoulded cornice, 5:1 bays, some window openings blocked, 3-light stair window set between end 2 bays right. Interior: the main feature is a fine early C18 dog-leg stair with inlaid panelled dados and treads, barley sugar twist balusters, turned newels and cut strings each decorated with individual carving. The high quality of the stair and the awkward junction of the newels suggest that it say have been reset. A very early example of brick work in Somerset with similarities to the outbuilding at Haydon House (qvi and Cutliffe Farmhouse (qv) Stoke St Mary CP. Length of wall abutting south-west corner, about 10 m in length of irregular bond. Random rubble and brick wall abutting north-west corner returned around forecourt as dwarf wall with spearhead railings on north side, pair of early C18 gatepiers, brick with ashlar dressings, topped by guilloche decorated urns; the gatepiers probably resited.
