One casement with glazing bars on first floor. The Stone Lodge has single-storey C20 extension on left (viewed from drive). The section adjoining the original building of flint and stone bonding. Beyond this - walls are plastered, with concrete slate roof. The Gatehouse has a C19 extension on right, extended in C20, with walls of brick and flint banding, partly slate-hung, and hipped tiled roof.

Internally, original lodges had one room on each floor - access to upper floors by cast iron spiral stairs.

These piers linked to the lodges by upswept ashlar stone walls. Ornamental iron gates with U-shaped top, and arrow-head tops to uprights. RCHM Monument (Dorset. Vol.III)
