GV II

Lodge to Hesketh Crescent (qv), possibly contemporary with and
by the same architects as Hesketh Crescent, built 1846-48 to
the designs of John Tapley Harvey and William Harvey. Snecked
local grey limestone, partly rendered with painted rusticated
quoins; hipped slate roof; stack with rendered shaft with
projecting cornice.
PLAN: Rectangular double-depth plan, the main entrance facing
east, towards Hesketh Crescent; rooms heated from axial stack.
Quoining suggests that the Lodge has been extended to the rear
(west). C20 extension on north side.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 2-window range. Deep projecting eaves
with eaves band and upward curving brackets. Round-headed
windows with proud stuccoed architraves, arranged in ones,
pairs and triplets and glazed with 2 over 2-pane sashes with
horizontal glazing bars. The windows on the east section,
probably the first phase, have sill blocks. Doorway on east
side with gabled porch hood on shaped brackets.
INTERIOR: Not inspected but may retain features of interest.
