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


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.
