GV II

Gate Lodge and screen. Earlier than 1865. By William Nesfield. Red English bond brick with ashlar dressings and a slate roof to the lodge. Lodge of two storeys. Road front: the lodge is to the right of the driveway to either side of which are screen walls. The drive gateway is to the centre and recessed. The lodge has a projecting canted 2-storey bay with 4 central lights and single lights to the angles at ground floor level with stone surround as have all the windows. Three central lights at first floor level with wide ashlar quoins to either side and brick walling to the angles. Immediately below this window is blue brick diapering in a zig-zag pattern. To the right of this is a lean-to with a 2-light ground floor window and tumbled brickwork to the half gable. Left hand front: Projecting gabled wing at left with 3-light ground and first floor windows the ground floor window having a transom as well as two mullions. To the right is a projecting ground floor bay of three lights with a transom and brattished parapet above. Above this to the first floor is a blind ashlar panel set with a shield in relief bearing the coat of arms of the Crewe family. To the right of the building is a section of walling with ashlar bands and to the right of this the wall projects forward and continues to the right pierced by a series of small round-headed arches to its upper body which have ashlar springers and keystones. Similar walling to left of driveway. All the walling has moulded ashlar coping and the angles of the wall and the ends are marked by brick piers of square section with flush ashlar bands and pierced finials of Jacobean form. The 4 piers to either side of driveway are ashlar, of square section and decorated with strapwork in relief. The lodge is similar in style to Nesfield's designs of 1860-1 for the farm buildings at Shipley Hall in its use of zig-zag diapering and flush ashlar bands, a style inspired by the domestic architecture of Burges and Street. Nesfield's father had laid out gardens at Crewe and it is therefore possible that his son was first employed to design this lodge at an early stage in his career and later designed further buildings by which time his later style had developed.
