Main gateway and entrance lodges to country house park. Known as Ermine Lodge, circa 1775. Battlemented Gothick style. The turret to the right hand lodge has missing stonework at the top and is in danger of further collapse. The screen wall at the far right is leaning inwards. The main lodge rooms in the turrets flanking the entrance arch are roofless with saplings growing inside. A condition survey funded by a grant from Historic England was carried out in 2015. A Historic England repair grant has been awarded and repairs should complete during 2018.
