Matching pair of lodges with gates to Woodfold Park, c. 1800; originally a
single dwelling, altered and part enlarged as house and garage. Sandstone

pyramidal roof (that on the left recently extended to the rear in matching
form and materials, the octagonal north end with a lower storey). Cardinal
faces to front and sides have round arches, the heads of those at the front
glazed, (with radiating glazing bars) over smaller windows, others with
rectangular windows which have altered glazing. Rear of right lodge now has
garage door. Between the lodges are cylindrical gate piers with decorated
bands, linked to them by short screen walls with round-headed arches; all
these openings have ornamental iron gates.
