11 BREDENBURY (C.b.)

(O.S. 6 in. (a)XX, N.E., (b)XXI, N.W.)

Bredenbury is a small parish 2 m. N.W. of Bromyard. Wicton Farm is the principal monument.

Ecclesiastical

a(1). Parish Church of St. Andrew was built in 1876–7. The old church, demolished in 1876, stood near Bredenbury Court.

Fittings—Plate: includes a cup of 1650 given by Margaret Saunders, and a pewter flagon and stand-paten. Miscellanea: In churchyard—font-bowl from Wacton (see under that place), and a second smaller bowl.

Secular

b(2). Wicton Farm (Plate 25), house, 1¼ m. E.S.E. of the church, is of two storeys with cellars and attics; the walls are timber-framed and the roofs are tiled. It was built early in the 16th century on an L-shaped plan with a cross-wing at the W. end. The house was extended to the W. in the 17th century. The N. and E. sides of the house have exposed timber-framing mostly of fairly close-set type; the upper storey at the N. end of the cross-wing has the timbers set diagonally in square panels; the gable has small square panels with segmental timbers across the angles, forming an ornamental design; the gable projects on a moulded bressummer with carved brackets springing from attached buttresses or shafts. Inside the building are exposed ceiling-beams and joists.

Condition—Good.
