BRIGHAM BRIGHAM
NY 03 SE
4/78 Parsonage Farmhouse
3-3-67 (previously listed as
Old Parsonage,
Brigham)
II*
Vicarage now Farmhouse. C13 or C14 with C19 and C20 alterations. Thick painted
roughcast walls, under graduated Welsh slate roof with coped gables; large
square central roughcast chimney stack. 2 storeys, 3 bays. C20 door in
roughcast stone porch. Medieval pointed arch of what is now a kitchen window
could have been a doorway. Yorkshire sash windows in C19 painted stone
surrounds. 2 medieval corbel stones project at different levels on either side
of porch. Weathered carved medieval coping stop on left gable. Return and rear
walls have C19 sash windows in painted stone surrounds. Right return wall has 2
buttresses and upper pointed-arched blocked window under pointed hood. Rear
extension has C20 garage doors and C20 stepped gables but has a buttress similar
to others on the main building. Although nothing is known of the history of
this building it appears to have been the vicarage for the medieval church and
predates the existing late C14 fortified vicarages seen elsewhere in the
county. No internal features of interest.
