Lodge and entrance archway. Early C19 by Sir Sitwell Sitwell.
Ashlar coal measures sandstone two storey archway, with square
angle piers supporting a chamfered pointed arch, rising to a
cornice with finials and a central crenellated pediment with
moulded merlons, the pediment enclosing an achievement of the
Sitwell arms. Flanking the archway are single storey pavilions
with 2-light Gothic windows, with four centred arched heads
beneath hoodmoulds with dropped returns. Panelled corner piers
with pinnacles, cornice and crenellated parapet. The archway
contains a good pair of cast iron carnage gates with delicate
gothic details. The archway, now ruinous, was formerly the
lodge on the Renishaw approach drive.
