6/24 Lodge at Castle Hill
Service Station


Lodge to former Old Union. 1835 by George Gilbert Scott. Neat ashlar walling
with dressings in contrasting yellow limestone, Welsh slate roof. A picturesque
design formerly one of a pair of lodges to the old Union, replacing a former
workhouse; the second lodge, to the east of the site, and the main building were
demolished 1968/69. Irregular plan with main north-south block and a cross-wing
forming a T towards the north: Street front has 2 single lights with transome
flanking 2-storey gabled porch with inner plank door to 4-centred arch beneath a
blank shield with raised hood mould under a narrow light. Return, left, has
projecting full height gable with 4-light casement under small square light;
then Tudor doorway under 2-light transome light, and a 3-light casement to a
central, projecting full height gable. All windows have stopped hoods and iron
diamond small scale glazing, gables are coped with roll saddles and kneelers;
two small flanking urns over main porch. Three ridge stacks. Right return is
plain. Apart from some later C20 impediments associated with the garage, this
is a good, well preserved lodge, now the more important as the remainder of the
group, around a broad courtyard, has disappeared.
