SU 51 SE SOBERTON
9/4 Rookesbury Lodges
(Nos. 1 & 2)
II
Two identical lodges, linked by a rail and gate-posts, being the former entrance
to Rookesbury (House), in Wickham parish. Early and mid C19. Stucco. Single-
storeyed buildings of classical form, extended at the rear. The main facades
face each other and are symmetrical, of three units framed by four pilasters,
containing a doorway in each outer unit. A simple Order with Greek mouldings
has an entablature across the facade, plain pilasters with cap and base, and a
plinth: the doorways have a cornice, friezes with three roundels, an architrave,
and half-glazed doors. Each end has a window within corner pilasters, but the
lower extensions are of brickwork on the roadside elevation and stucco towards
the park: one outside and two inside sash windows. The extensions continue
along the roadside as high brick boundary walls. From mid-points in each main
facade there extends a low wall with a stone capping, surmounted by cast-iron
rails, and ending on gate piers of simple form in stucco (the original gates
now gone).
