2/156 West Lodge. (That part in the
parish of Iwerne Minster)also in
the parish of Sutton Waldron

Country House. Early C19 remodelling of an C18 building possibly
incorporating parts of the fabric of a C17 or earlier hunting lodge.
South east front is rendered and whitewashed, other walls largely of
whitewashed brick (Flemish bond). Central pavilion and south-west wing
slated, north-east ranges tiled. Brick and rendered stacks in various
positions. Part single storey, part 2 storey. Basements and attics.
Near symmetrical. Main range of 11 bays. 3:5:3. Central gabled pavilion
has an attached, giant, tetrastyle, Tuscan portico with greens and ashlar
columns. These support a wooden entablature and pediment. The slope of
the pediment is continued down over the outer bays of the central pavilion
The extremities of the centre pavilion are defined by pilaster strips.
The flanking wings have-parapets partially concealing the roofs. Main
windows are 15-pane sashes, those to the central pavilion having been
slightly reduced in height to accommodate the insertion of a first floor.
Central 3 bays have 3 circular windows. Outer bays of central pavilion
have 4-pane sashes to the upper floor. Lunette window in the pediment.
Pilastered doorways with part-glazed doors to outer bays of central
pavilion, that to the right has a pediment. The rear facade has a number
of mullioned and transomed windows with leaded-lights in wrought-iron
casements. Central wooden porch with pedimental hood on Ionic columns an

Internally most features are of the C19. The south-west staircase has
case-iron balusters and newel-posts.

The house is of considerable interest both because of its origin as a
hunting lodge on Cranborne Chase and because the C19 work is an exercise
in deliberate neo-classical primitivism. Part in the parish of Sutton
