with Portland stone dressings, hipped lead roofs. Symmetrical. Central gateway with
round headed arches flanked by single bay, single storey lodges. The central arch is
flanked by Dorie half-columns which support a pedimented entablature. The entablature
bears the inscription 'Bryanston School' in gilded Roman capitals. Each lodge has a
single 12-pane sash and a moulded cornice. The flanking walls curve forward to the
roadside and terminate in large rectangular piers. The walls have moulded copings and
the piers are surmounted by heraldic beasts bearing shields. (RCHM, Dorset, vol.III,
