- Gates, gatepiers and walls
at Milton Lodge
Entrance gateway to Battlesden House (now demolished). Probably part of work
carried out 1860-1868 by G H Stokes (advised by Sir Joseph Paxton) for Sir
Edward Page-Turner. Red brick with ashlar dressings, the gates of cast iron.
Consists of central double gates flanked by single gates, these supported by 4
piers, and linked to outer piers on road edge by symmetrical lengths of
curving wall. The 6 piers each stand approximately 2.5 metres high, the walls
approximately half of this height. Each stretch of wall approximately 10
metres long. Piers are rusticated with ashlar blocks and have heavily moulded
cornices. Those adjoining walls shave heavily moulded ashlar consoles at
junction. Walling is stone-coped, and brickwork arranged in an ornamental
pierced design simulating balusters. The ironwork gates have ornamental
cresting, that to central gates including initials E.P.T.
D Bassett, "G H Stokes at Battlesden and Belle Vue". Architectural History,
