West lodge, Weedon Depot, Bridge Street, Lower Weedon, Weedon Bec - Daventry

Lodge/gatehouse, early C19. Part of an extraordinary military complex built during the Napoleonic era. All structural repairs now complete and external steps reinstated. Building fully weathertight and recently in business use, but now vacant. The whole site was underused for many years and was left in poor condition. It was sold in early 2013 and is now home to various businesses. The owner is considering further development. A condition survey of the most at risk elements of the site was carried out with the support of a Historic England grant. A repair strategy is being formulated.
