FLETCHING SEARLES
TQ 42 NW
18/793 Soutn Lodge
II
Lodge. Dated 1867, possibly a remodelling of an earlier Cottage. Brick built
faced in random stone rubble, the front octagonal bay and left hand side faced
in coursed rock-faced stone; rendered at rear and right hand side. Flat roof
covered in felt and concealed behind embattled parapet with moulded coping.
2 lateral stacks at the back and on the left side with pairs of octogonal and
moulded stone shafts. Plan: Overall 3-room plan. Tne main range is a 2-room
plan with a straight staircase between tne 2 rooms, each room heated from a lateral
stack and with a central back doorway between. In front of the right hand room
there is an octagonal room with the main doorway at the front and a stack in
the side wall. This octagonal room is said to be an addition to an earlier
cottage but there appears to be no sign of a joint on the masonry, therefore the
front and the left side might have been refaced in 1867. Tudor Gotnic style.
Exterior: 2 storeys. The front and right hand sides have an embattled parapet.
A large octagonal tower-like bay projects on the left the alternate sides of
which have small gablets over the battlements with elaborate stone finials.
Similar gablet on the right. One ground floor window on each side of the octagon
except for the left and front where there is the front doorway, another window
on the ground floor to the right. These are all in chamfered stone frames
containing C19 2-light casements with cusped heads and glazing bars. Small
single-light window on first floor immediately to right of tne octagon. At
the front of the octagon a chamfered stone Tudor arch doorframe witn recessed
spandrels and C19 glazed and panelled door. A datestone 1867 high up over tne
doorway. Interior: was being stripped out of the time of survey April 1988 but the
first floor room in the octagon has a late C19 or early C20 fireplace grate
with Art Nouveau decoration.

South Lodge and Searles North Lodge (qv) are lodges to the demolished Victorian
Gothic mansion 'Searles' which is said to have been built in 1865.
