R. W. Newman Bart. Late C20 extension to lodge. Red sandstone rubble, rendered and
painted to imitate timber framing on the first floor ; thatched roof. Extension is
re-constituted stone, also with a thatched roof. Eccentrically Picturesque.
Plan: Irregular, originally 2 rooms on plan with an octagonal first floor, extended
at the east end.
Exterior: Partly 2 storeys. Striking front elevation, overlooking the entrance to
Mamhead House, the octagonal first floor on brackets with pendants has a thatched
roof with a finial and oversails the ground floor. Large porch with a hipped
thatched roof, the walls of the porch framed with a splat balustrade above panels
filled with plaster, cast in basket-weave patterns on the interior, and pantiles on
the exterior. Plank and cover strip front door with a Tudor arch and ornamental
hinges. The main block has 2- and 3-light casement windows, 2-light windows to the
Interior: Modernized.
The most inventive and least altered of the Mamhead House lodges.
