Old Haa of Brough
2 storey with attic, crowstepped gables.
Built for Robert Tyrie, his initials and 1782 are on the armorial panel above
the round headed courtyard doorway to the south. Early Haa form with irregular
deepset windows. Early photographs show the courtyard with gateways and the range
of outbuildings now demolished.
2 wings at right angles to each other. One? probably older
than the other. One wing 2 storey pitched roof, the other 2 storey with
very low pitch felt roof (later or altered?)
Interior walls, floors and roofs collapsed into the interior. The property
was obviously a shop, at least latterly, internal partitions are constructed
from sides and ends of wooden produce boxes (biscuits and golden syrup). The
entrance to the low pitched end has an internal timber bar which could reinforce
the door and slid into a socket built into the thickness of the wall.
Derelict walls remain.

North Haa, West Sandwick
18th c.2 storey with garret. 17th c. Haa remodelled
1829. Front block added c.1770. Classical frontage of tripartate windows
flanking a central, round headed window on the principal, first, floor.
Pedimented porch and side office wings, the latter with venetian windows.
The four smaller windows on the ground floor indicate that this was probably
a five bay wide Haa before the remodelling. Despite later fenestration
the house has a tall Haa form with dominant garret.
