1/187 Lodge and attached gate
piers to Norwood
Lodge and gate piers. 1855. Picturesque. Hammer-dressed stone, ashlar, slate roof.
The lodge is 'L' shaped with one wing comprising a large bay window whose corners are
cut back to quadrants of 3 lights, flanking a central window with similar moulded
jambs and transom. This wing, that to road, and the porch in the angle, all have
steep and heavy gables with spike dropped finials and extremely florid barge boards.
The porch is supported on 2 wooden columns of differing design, carrying a lintel
with raised and gilded Gothic lettering: 'COELI CERTA MERCES. AD 1855'. (The reward
of Heaven is certain?) The roof, which is stone ridged, has slates of fish scale
and lozenge patterns. Prominent central stack. Attached gate piers are square in
section with sunk panels, cornice and pyramidal finial of which the surface is
decoratively chased. Short sections of adjoining wall have ornamental pierced
balustrade of Elizabethan character.
