BRAMHAM CUM OGLETHORPE BRAMHAM SE44SW LS23 1/22 Bramham Biggin 30.3.66 (Formerly listed as Bramham Biggin Bowcliffe Road)


Large house. C17, altered 1750-56 by James Paine, for Allison. Mostly dressed magnesian limestone, with some coursed rubble, stone slate roof. H-plan. Two- and-a-half storeys, symmetrical; plinth, quoins, moulded dripcourses on 2 levels, carried round the whole; set-back centre has central double doors with architrave and consoles supporting a pediment which breaks the dripcourse, two 12-pane sashes at ground floor and 2 above, a Diocletian window at 2nd floor (all these with plain surrounds), a hoodmould to a former mullioned window in the gable, gable coping with kneelers and finial; C18 rainwater head in each angle, narrow diagonal stairlight on each floor of right-hand angle. Gable of each wing has one window on each floor: ground-floor Venetian window breaking the dripcourse, 12- and 9-pane windows above, those in the right wing sashed but those in the left all glazed but blocked internally by a chimney stack which rises to break through the gable coping off-centre; otherwise, each gable has a hoodmould like that in the centre, gable coping with kneelers, and finial (to right-hand gable). Most of these windows break the remains of former cross windows, and there are similar remains in both re-entrant walls. Return wall of left wing, 6 bays, has windows like those at front, but with single-storey semicircular bay windows to 1st and 4th, with parapet, 12-pane sashes in the 2nd and 3rd bays, and at 2nd floor a Diocletian window in the centre and a small sash in each outer bay. Rear: inter alia a cross window at 2nd floor of rear gable of right wing, suggesting original form of other fenestration before C18 alterations. Interior: altered, the present principal feature of interest being the 2-storey entrance hall with C18 staircase (open string, scrolled brackets, 2 slim turned balusters per tread, panelled newels and ramped handrail); and stone flagged floor. History: was used as school during C19, with additions (now demolished) and alterations. References: RCHM Rural Houses of West Yorkshire 1400-1830 1986) p. 96.
