Entrance Lodge. 1885, attributed to Richard Norman Shaw but possibly by
W.R. Lethaby. Finely-jointed orange brick with yellow/grey sandstone ashlar
dressings. Pyramidal lead roof. Square plan. Neo-Georgian style.
2 storeys. Chamfered quoins and moulded dentil eaves cornice with blocking
course. Central brick stack with stone base, flush stone quoins and stone
coping with globe corner finials. First-floor small-paned Diocletian window
with 2-light casement and gauged-brick head. Half-glazed door off-centre
to left with 2 panels (lower beaded flush and upper moulded recessed) and
small square window to right. Wide flat porch on deep shaped brackets (with
later supports) and 5 stone steps up to door with coped low flanking walls.
Return fronts, each with first-floor Diocletian window above ground-floor
Venetian window consisting of small-paned lights divided by brick piers,
stone cill, and gauged brick head with moulded dripstone or cornice. Rear

Walled garden enclosure at rear with moulded stone coping and end
pier with stone cap. Interior of lodge not inspected. This lodge and
No. 2 , Tittenley Lodge (q.v.) flank the beginning of the public road which
passes through Shavington Park (Shavington Hall demolished in
1959). Richard Norman Shaw carried out alterations at Shavington Hall
for Arthur Pemberton Heywood - Lonsdale in 1885-6 but in 1903 Ernest Newton
also worked at the house and probably designed other estate buildings (nos.
7 & 8, Shavington Park, Moreton Say C.P. q.v.) and it has been suggested (Dr.
Richard Morrice 1986) that he may have also designed the lodges. Andrew
