Court and Eaton Hall


Lodge, Gates, Piers and Screens. 1870's by Alfred Waterhouse for 3rd
Marquis and 1st Duke of Westminster. Stone and shaped red tiles;
wrought and cast iron. Single chamber gabled lodge (early French
Renaissance). Semi-octagon bay window, front, with hipped roof of
wrought stone slabs, surmounted by armorial panel. Deeply moulded
window surround and mullions. Twice-weathered plinth. Shaped stone
eaves and parapet gables and tall, strongly moulded hexagonal gable
chimney. Lancet windows to sides and rear, patterned leaded glazing
and boarded oak door on ornate wrought iron hinges, set back in
moulded stone opening. Two gate piers with octagonal corner
buttresses and spirelets linked to steep gabled caps carrying ornate
lamp standards with coronals of curved wheat-ears below octagonal
lanterns, originally gas. Similar but smaller pier, without lamp
standard, left.
Pair of iron gates with closely spaced scrollwork below lockrail and
in two panels above, with letter 'W' central on each gate. Doghead
finials to vertical rails.
Screens left and right of similar character to gates stand on tapered
stone plinths. Lodge, gates and screens are one of the few parts to
survive intact of Waterhouse's boundary fence between park and garden.
