1/58 Lodge and gates to Prestwold Hall


Two identical single storey lodges. c1820-40. Rendered brick with stone
dressings. 4-columned arcade in front of doorway , and angle pilasters to
road front are all fluted Doric with a triglyph frieze which forms a parapet
to a small hipped roof with central ashlar stack. Door and sash windows all
have stone architraves. Alignment not quite parallel to drive increases the
perspective down the drive. Curved flanking walls are also rendered and terminate
in piers with ball finials. Wrought iron gates, the principal pair flanked
by 2 pedestrian gates, all with spear head decoration. Cast iron trellis-work
gate piers with ball finials. One of the lodges bears the date 1821. Although
their style links them with Burn's work on the house, they may therefore predate
this, and are possibly by Wilkins, who had been employed to make some alterations,
c1805. 1"
