Two park gate lodges, 2 gate piers and walls. Circa 1835. Ashlar to lodges with stone slate roofs, squared dressed stone with ashlar copings to walls. Two identical neo-Jacobean lodges of 2 storeys set parallel to drive and at right-angles to the Malmesbury road. Rectangular in plan with gabled end walls decorated with balls and urns terminating in obelisks to kneelers and apexes of gables. Two-light windows with hoodmoulds to ground floor, single lights to upper. Tall ashlar stacks rising from eaves to rear. Square gate pier to right intact with dentil cornice and urn-obelisk finial; original pier to left demolished, only rebuilt stone stump remains. Curving quadrant walls terminating in square piers creating forecourt to left and right. Both lodges were in a very poor state of repair at time of resurvey (July 1986). (Tim Mowl & Brian Earnshaw, Trumpet at a Distant Gate, 1985)
