Entrance lodge. Circa 1830, probably by 6.S. Repton for James Houghton Langston;
extended late C20. Roughly coursed limestone rubble with ashlar dressings; stone
slate roofs with moulded coped verges. Double-depth plan with 2 gables to front
Tudor Gothic style. 2 storeys. Two recessed chamfered 2-light mullion windows
linked by continuous hoodmould incorporating recessed blank armorial shield to
centre on first floor and cross-windows with dripstones to left and right on
ground floor. Central gabled ashlar porch with corbel table and half-glazed door
in outer shouldered arch. Small ogee-arched gable between 2 gables, right of
which slightly projects. Valley stacks to left and right each have 3 detached
diagonal shafts with moulded capping. 2-bay returns with recess for downpipe to
centre have 2-light mullions linked by continuous hoodmoulds continued from
front to first floor and segmental-headed mullioned and transomed bay windows in
3 lights to ground floor. All windows and door have leaded latticed lights. The
house is the former lodge to The Dower House (q.v.). (formerly Sarsgrove
Cottage) built for Langston by Repton in c.1825. Late C20 extension to rear is
not of special architectural interest.
