Bridge Keeper's Lodge
at Cam Bridge on


Canal-side lodge. Early C19. Smooth rendered, very low-pitched Welsh slate roof to
cross-gabled plan: three gables as classical pediments, over continuous plain frieze
except to rear (north-west) face. The slates covered with a patented paint-on weather
surface. Two storeys, one window to each facade, but at canal front one storey only,
because of build up of embankment. This probably an open portico originally, but now
modern doors and lights set between pair Greek Doric half-columns, with Ionic fluting,
and between antis. On return, right, contemporary sash with glazing bars, elsewhere
modern windows, including later extension with stck, at back.

This is one of the bridge-keepers' cottages, built to serve the Gloucester-Berkeley
Canal which was opened in 1827.
