Witton B6
Lodges, gate piers and
railings to
Witton Cemetery
SP 09 SE 3/25
Circa 1850. Pink sandstone with buff stone dressings; multi-coloured slate
roof. The lodges wilfully asymmetrical both in themselves and with each other.
That on the north, the principal one, with a canted bay window and 2 gables
to the road and, to the drive, a 2 storeyed canted bay window with stone roof
and, set back, an entrance tower-porch with tripartite bell openings, prominent
gargoyles and elated pyramidal roof with lucarnes. Bold chimney stacks. The
south a lesser lodge of one storey plus attic, generally similar in style to the
north lodge but more modest with a canted bay window to the road and a bowed south end. The turret piers buttressed and with stone spires and iron finials; flanking railings of iron in a Gothic style. Similar quadrant railings into modern piers and entrance gates.
