GV II

Lodge, Gates, Piers and Screens. 1870's by Alfred Waterhouse for 3rd Marquis and 1st Duke of Westminster. Stone and shaped red tiles; wrought and cast iron. Single chamber gabled lodge (early French Renaissance). Semi-octagon bay window, front, with hipped roof of wrought stone slabs, surmounted by armorial panel. Deeply moulded window surround and mullions. Twice-weathered plinth. Shaped stone eaves and parapet gables and tall, strongly moulded hexagonal gable chimney. Lancet windows to sides and rear, patterned leaded glazing and boarded oak door on ornate wrought iron hinges, set back in moulded stone opening. Two gate piers with octagonal corner buttresses and spirelets linked to steep gabled caps carrying ornate lamp standards with coronals of curved wheat-ears below octagonal lanterns, originally gas. Similar but smaller pier, without lamp standard, left. Pair of iron gates with closely spaced scrollwork below lockrail and in two panels above, with letter 'W' central on each gate. Doghead finials to vertical rails. Screens left and right of similar character to gates stand on tapered stone plinths. Lodge, gates and screens are one of the few parts to survive intact of Waterhouse's boundary fence between park and garden.
