8/42 Ripon Gates at east side
of Studley Park, with
flanking walls and lodges
6.3.67 (Formerly listed as Golf
Cottage and East Lodge)

Gateway, flanking walls and lodges. Early C18 for John Aislabie; with
advice from Colen Campbell; the lodges enlarged 1840. Wrought-iron gates
and overthrow, ashlar stone slate roof with lead margins to lodges.
Gateway: round-arched carriage entrance flanked by straight-headed
pedestrian entrances. Vermiculated rusticated quoins and voussoirs. Impost
band from round arch carried over pedestrian arches and continues as the
coping to flanking walls. Keystone with mask, deep modillioned eaves
cornice, 4 ball finials. Wrought-iron overthrow in fan pattern; pedestrian
gates with plain bars and rails. Flanking walls - approximately 3.5 metres
high and 6 metres long. North lodge: T-plan, one-storey, 3-bays, the right
bay projecting at front and rear. Left - 6-panel door in Gibbs surround
with tripartite keystone and open pediment. 4-pane sash centre and right;
narrow attic window in gable, right. Modillioned eaves cornice, open gable
pediment. Corniced ridge stack to right of door and centre of right bay.
Rear: stone mullioned canted bay window right; 4-pane sashes. Left return:
blocked doorway, narrow window above. Right return: attached lean-to
screened by flanking ramped wall with flat coping and end pier with shallow
pyramidal cap. South lodge: similar to north but with wider gable window on
front. The style of the gateway is very similar to the Mackershaw Lodge
(qv), but the original small square lodge houses were probably similar to
those at the Canal gates (qv) and the fishing houses on the Cascade (qv)
both being built c1720. The door surrounds are similar to those at
Sleningford Park (qv), dated c1710.
