KINGSTEIGNTON SX 87 NE 4/106 Fosterville Lodge


Lodge to Ugbrooke Park (q.v.). 1820s with late C20 rear addition. Local grey limestone rubble with ashlar limestone dressings; hipped slate roof; central axial stack with paired chimney shafts.

Probably a 2 room plan, projecting 5-sided porch at the centre of the front. Late C20 addition at rear.

Single-storey. 1:3:1 bay front, the centre 3 in a splay-fronted porch with a doorway at the centre and a pyramidal roof. Plank front door in a doorway with a keystone.

2-light casements in the splayed sides of the porch have round-headed lights and keystones; similar windows to left and right in the main block have spoke leading to the glazing.

Interior not inspected.

Fosterville Lodge is different in character from the rustic thatched designs of Smoothway, Clapperland and Ashwell Lodges, (q.v.). The building was formerly known as Babcombe Lodge.
