NY 52 NW BROUGHAM BROUGHAM

9/2 Curtain Walls, gateway buildings, stables and domestic 20.5.75 ranges forming part of Brougham Hall (formerly listed as Ruins of Brougham Hall)

GV II*

Curtain walls, gateways and associated buildings with integral stables and domestic ranges. Partly late C15 or early C16 with C17 additions; unifying early C19 alterations and additions by L.N. Cottingham for Lord Brougham, partly demolished 1934. Walls of mixed sandstone rubble with C19 battlemented parapets, without roofs. U-shaped wall, part of which was totally demolished (but being rebuilt in 1986 in similar materials) with a left inner C19 gateway, near which is an external C17 gateway and central early C19 2-storey, square gate tower. Inside the wall beside the C17 gateway is a guardhouse under parapet walk. Between the gateways is a 2-storey, 3-bay late C15 or early C16 range. Beyond the gate tower are the ruins of C19 stables and domestic ranges. Right higher part of wall has C19 mullioned and cross-mullioned windows on 3 levels, which lit the domestic ranges. Gate tower has double studded panelled doors in pointed archway; angled turrets with chamfered loops. Battlemented parapet with central machicolation. Left part of the wall is lower and appears to be of 4 different builds. C17 gateway has C17 studded panelled doors in a round chamfered arch under a machicolated parapet. This doorway originally had an inner lock dated and inscribed AP 1680 (Anne Pembroke), but now missing. Further inner gateway has round arch. C15 range has Tudor-arched doorways and 2-light stone-mullioned windows. Guardhouse has similar doorway and barred window; the interior is vaulted and has a fireplace in angle. Vaulted archway behind C17 gateway. Rear of gate tower has large vaulted through archway under replica C12 window. Stables are almost completely in ruins; the domestic range beyond has segmental-arched openings with 2-light windows above. Cellars beneath domestic range. Correspondence concerning the work done by Cottingham between 1829-1840 are in University College Library, Cambridge. In 1986 walls are being repaired and roofs being added to some buildings, other parts being excavated, for eventual use as a craft centre. Left late C19 red sandstone garden wall is not of interest.
