A former lodge built in c1840 with C20 additions.

Reason for Listing

* Architectural interest: an ancillary structure in the Tudor -Gothic style that displays a considerable amount of intricate architectural detail;
* Group value: with other listed buildings on Bathwick Hill.


The lodge served the former Bathwick Priory, which was demolished in c1960 and formed an odd Gothic incident in the otherwise Italianate surrounds of Bathwick Hill.


MATERIALS: It is built in Limestone ashlar, and has a steeply-pitched slate roof with paired diagonal ridge stacks to the centre.

EXTERIOR: A Picturesque single storey lodge, with attic, built in Tudor-Gothic style with a three window front. It has diagonally leaded casement windows. To the left is a forward-facing shouldered gable with a finial, pendant, moulded coping and a moulded string course which follows the contours, with a small window over a two light canted bay which has a hipped stone slate roof. To the right a half dormer has a small shouldered gable with a hood-mould to a slit in the apex over paired casements. Below is a similar window, to the far left is a small single storey wing with a C20 window. The right gable end is similar to that at the front.

INTERIOR: Not inspected.
