5/10 Gates at W entrance to
Hamels Park (East Herts
Golf Club) and 2 lodges
11.1.71 (Hamels Lodge, and
Hamel's Keep)
(formerly listed as pair of lodges
(at entrance to Hamels Park))


Gates and 2 flanking lodges, now private houses. 1781-3 by John
Soane for Hon Philip Yorke. Stuccoed brick with hipped slate
roofs. Wrought iron gates. Double gates hung on stuccoed square
piers, flanked by foot gates hung on half piers attached to the
corners of the flanking lodges. Each lodge is designed as a
square with a tall round-headed recess on the front, rear and
side facing the drive. A narrower 2-storeys outer side section
on each may be a C19 extension and the central chimney with 3
square linked shafts is probably of the same period (as it would
have been external to the square plan). Symmetrical single-
storey stucco extensions to right and left. Each square lodge
has a painted plinth, impost band, recessed sash window in each
face with 6/6 panes, and a dentilled eaves course. The gate
piers have a necking and projecting cap.
