- II*

Entrance lodge. Circa 1822-8, by Sir John Soane. Late C20 addition.

Grey sandstone ashlar. Painted brick at rear. Hexagonal plan with alternate square projections, curved wall at rear. One storey over basement.

Stone plinth band, recessed freize with incised triglyph blocks, and moulded cornice. Blocking course with small multi-gabled blocks. Wings have tall pierced parapets with panelled dies. Central hexagonal wooden lantern with closely-spaced glazing bars, wide eaves with thin brackets and pyramidal copper cap with lead and copper finial. 3-light stone-mullioned window with stepped deep reveals, closely-spaced glazing bars and incised borders, returning as fret. 3-light basement windows. Rear projections have recessed straight-sided arched panels with incised borders, returning as fret.

Tall rectangular windows with closely-spaced glazing bars and incised borders in end panels; blind windows in side panels. Porch to east; chamfered straight-sided arched openings in each face with incised borders, returning as fret. 4 steps up. Chamfered straight-sided arched doorway with incised border and 3 half-glazed doors with flush lower panels and closely-spaced glazing bars. Boarded basement doors at rear. Lead downpipes with moulded rainwater heads. Interior: pendentive dome. Segmental arch to rear with flush-panelled reveals and soffit. The north-west projection contains a stone staircase with plain wrought-iron balustrade. The south-west pro- jection is said by the owner to have been the lodge-keeper's sleeping accommo- dation. The lodge is notable for its original and non-historicist use of Gothic and Classical forms. Drawings of the lodge survive in the Soane Museum. The 1838, tithe map shows a drive running from the lodge up to Pell Wall, parallel with the Newport Road.
