SE 45 SW GREAT RIBSTON WALSHFORD WITH WALSHFORD 6/28 Walshford Lodge to 15.3.66 Ribston Hall, with gate-piers and linking walls (Previously listed as Pair of Lodges at Ribston Hall)


Pair of lodges with linking walls, outer and inner gate-piers and gates.

Mid-late C18, possibly by John Carr, with C20 addition. Ashlar, wrought-iron gates, Westmorland slate roofs. The 2 small lodge houses are linked by a curving wall to the outer pair of gate-piers. Low railings and a single-leaf gate link the outer to the inner gate-piers which in turn support the inner pair of gates. Lodges: single storey, of 1 bay on left, of 2 bays on right. Entrances to rear. Round-headed sash windows with glazing bars are set in round-arched recesses. Banded rustication below impost band carried around the building. Paterae flank heads of windows below dentilled triangular pediments with ashlar coping. Cylindrical stacks at ridge centres. Each lodge has pillars flanking gable end supporting globe with projecting fluted band. The curved linking walls, approximately 2 metres high, have flat copings. The outer pair of gate-piers, approximately 3 metres high, support forward-facing sphinxes. The inner pair, approximately 4 metres high, have an entablature with rosette motif and a triangular pediment surmounted by inward-facing lions with paw on globe. Both sets of piers have banded rustication. Gates: outer (single)gates, and attached railings, approximately 1.2 metres high, all have arrow-headed bars and dog-bars, with pendants under top and bottom rails. The main gates have elaborately scrolled lock-bars. The lodge to the right has a C20 extension to rear.
