12/55 Pair of Lodges at southern entrance to
16-11-1954 Gisburne Park with 6 stone piers and
linking railings and gates.
Pair of lodges, said to be c.1800. Sandstone ashlar with slate roofs. A
mirrored pair, in a Gothick style, each lodge of 2 storeys with a facade
treated as a single storey. South (gable) walls flanked by pilasters, each
with 2 sinkings decorated by attached shafts and crocketed gablets in relief.
Gables and side parapets topped by closely-spaced pinnacles with varying
amounts of decoration. In the centre of each south elevation is a window
of 3 lancet lights under a moulded pointed head, with clustered shafts as
mullions and as reveals. Above is a crocketed gablet in relief, with finial,
enclosing a niche with statue. The north gable walls are treated similarly.
The walls facing the drive have blank arcades of 3 pointed arches springing
from pilasters, a hollow-moulded frieze with intersecting arcade below a
cornice. The entrance doors, towards the front of each lodge, have tracery
decoration and Tudor-arched heads, set within a blank opening with trefoiled
head. Each lodge is flanked by a pair of piers of square plan with
crocketed pinnacles, linked to their lodges by iron railings. These are
linked to a central pair of gate piers by further railings. The latter
piers have sunken lancet panels, cornices, and pinnacles.
