7/183 Sarsden Glebe Lodge
Shown on O.S. map as The Lodge.
Entrance lodge. Circa 1818 by G.S. Repton (based on a design of his father for a
pair of lodges on the Isle of Wight); later additions and alterations. Roughly
coursed limestone rubble with quoins and ashlar dressings; hipped concrete tile
roof. T-plan. One storey. Catslide lean-to to front, supported on wooden posts,
with fretted bargeboards to roughly central gable has segmental-headed
nail-studded plank door with narrow rectangular leaded casement to left. 2-light
round-headed leaded window with voussoirs to end wall and plain leaded casement
to projecting range. Stone ridge stack (top rebuilt late C20) to main range,.
C20 additions to rear and right are not of special architectural interest. The
lodge is closely modelled on an earlier drawing by G.S. Repton of the paired
lodges designed by his father, Humphry, at the entrance to St. John's, Isle of
Wight. These are now demolished.
