TA 11 SW BROCKLESBY BROCKLESBY PARK

1/7 Brocklesby Hall 25-10-51 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.
