II

Detached lodge. c1875 and late C20. Rubble, scallop-edge tile
roof with decorative clay ridges. L-plan, with gabled wing
brought forward, right, and with central entry; the lodge
extended at the rear in late C20, with swept-down roof. In the
Picturesque tradition, echoed in other properties on the Lee
Abbey estate.
2 storeys; 1+1-window range. Wood hollow-mould mullion
casements with cast-iron decorative glazing with extended
hexagons, and set to large cut slate cills. To the left, in
the set-back wing, a 3-light to large stone voussoirs, above a
3-light under a pent tile roof on poles. To the right is a
3-light above a bay with small single-light returns and
4-light front, under a pent roof. Centred is the original
door, in 3 vertical panels with battens and nail-head, but
entry is now by a C20 door in the extended wing to the right,
set back. A large square stack to the left gable, and one
centred to the ridge. The barge-boards, including the eaves to
the pent bay are carved as interlaced twigs.
INTERIOR was considerably altered when the extension was made,
and little original detail was seen at ground floor level.
The former list refers to a date of 1875 on a well-head, but
this was not seen.
