1/7 Brocklesby Hall
G.V. I

Large country house, probably C16 originally, altered before 1708
and remodelled circa 1730. Severely damaged by fire in 1898,
restored by Sir Reginald Blomfield, and reduced in size and
altered C20 by Phillimore. Red brick with ashlar dressings
cement rendered rear west elevation, low hipped roofs with ridge
stacks. U-plan. Main north east front has plinth, rusticated
quoins, first and second floor bands, parapet band and
balustraded parapet. 9 bay 3 storey front arranged 2:5:2 with
central bays slightly advanced. Central glazing bar sash window
with distyle in antis portico with entablature. To either side
are 4 glazing bar sashes. To first floor are 9 further sashes
with plain aprons, with 9 further similar smaller sashes with
aprons on the third floor. All windows have moulded stone
surrounds with raised keystones. The angles of the front are
crowned with urns. South front of 6 bays having late C19 central
semicircular bow window added to the otherwise C18 front which is
composed of glazing bar sashes, floor bands and parapet following
the main front. Beyond the south front is the single storey
picture gallery of 3 bays, originally by Tatham, 1807, but
refronted by Phillimore in C20. Interior:- The fire of 1898
destroyed most of the interior of the existing house, and what
escaped the fire was borne away in Claude Phillimore's later C20
restoration. The east hall, designed by Capability Brown, in
1772, was burnt out, and the present interior is a meticulous
reconstruction of the original. The interior of Tatham's gallery
was similarly reconstructed by Phillimore.
