Lodge cottage. c1840, built for the Earl of Harrington and
probably designed by William Barron. Red brick on stone plinth
and with stone dressings. Slate roof with small brick side wall
stack to south-east corner and strange parapets to side walls
which curve in at eaves level and curve out again to top. Each
gable end has flush parapets with curved tops rising to a
central point. Single storey, plus garrets and single bay plus
lean-to. Main elevation has a central chamfered trefoil headed
doorcase and studded wooden door with matching inner trefoil
headed panel, flanked by cinquefoil headed single light
chamfered windows. Above the door there is a cinquefoil headed
niche with a large 'H' topped by a coronet within. Side
elevations have larger central single light cinquefoil headed
windows with small lozenge shaped windows above, cut out of the
brick. Rear elevation has lean-to with central trefoil headed
door and similar single light windows to either side plus a
larger cinquefoil headed one above. All windows originally had
diamond pattern cast iron glazing, some of these are now
missing. Built as one of a series of similar buildings erected
during the creation of the lavish gardens, designed by William
Barron from 1830-60, which are included in the Derbyshire
Historic Gardens Register at Grade II*.
