7/62 West Lodge and entrance gates to Grittleton House

GV II

Entrance lodge and gates to Grittleton House, 1854-5 by H. Clutton for Joseph Neeld of Grittleton. Lodge is of small ashlar blocks with stone slate roof, moulded coped gables with finials and large north wall outside stack. 1½ storey, T-plan, picturesque Tudor style, ovolo-moulded stone-mullion windows with arched heads to lights and deep hoodmoulds. High moulded base, dripcourse over ground floor and across west and south gables. West gable has ground floor 3-light mullion-and-transom window, first floor 2- light with dripcourse stepped over and apex roundel. South gable is similar but with ground floor 2-light and east side-wall stack. In south west angle is octagonal porch tower with dripcourses carried around, ground floor Tudor-arched doorway, now window, first floor very small arched stair lights and free-standing octagonal top-stage with intersecting circle tracery to square west and south lights and stone slated octagonal spire. East end gable has similar details at gable level, and C20 extension attached. Entrance screen railings and gates run south, the railings each side on low coped wall, with spear heads and dog-bars. The gates are of extremely ornate wrought iron between four ashlar piers with column-shafts let into angles and concave-curved octagonal caps with cast-iron finials. Taller piers to centre double gates, smaller piers each side. Double gates and pedestrian gates each side have ornate foliate scroll motifs and centre flowers, the double gates, when closed have a large circular motif with 'Succede/Libens/Invitus/Excedas' in border. Design is apparently a modification by H. Clutton of the plan of the Malmesbury Lodge (q.v.) by J. Thomson, with altered elevations. Accounts for 1855 record fixing of gates, apparently made by T. Potter & Son. (Wiltshire Record Office, 1305/83)
