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.
