Triumphal entrance archway designed by Ambrose Phillipps, 1730s. Located on the edge of pleasure grounds around White Lodge, 1100 metres south west of the site of Garendon Hall. Aligned on the Temple of Venus to the east along an avenue of alternating deciduous and coniferous trees. Arch and lodge in fair condition although not regularly maintained. The outline application for a Sustainable Urban Extension was approved in 2015, subject to a Section 106 Agreement requiring repair and restoration of the park and its buildings. The scheme has yet to be implemented.
