2/27 Skelton Lodges to Newby
Hall with attached gates
6.3.67 and screen walls (formerly
listed as "The Skelton Lodges
Newby Park Nos 25,26,27 & 28)


Range of lodge buildings, gates and screen walls. c1777 by William Belwood
for William Weddell with c.1870 restoration. Ashlar, brick, grey slate
roofs, wrought-iron gates. A long symmetrical range composed of central
double gates, gate piers, railings, outer piers and ramped walls to flanking
square one-bay, 2-storey lodges, screen walls with central gateways beyond
with outer single-storey, 3-bay lodges beyond again, outer screen walls with
central gateways ramped up to massive end piers. Central gates (probably
C19): bars with lock rail and S-scroll ornament to high arched tops. Inner
piers: banded rustication of an angular vermiculated type, surmounted by
cineraria with classical emblems including ramsheads, swags and masks.
Seated lion crest. Railings (original): elaborate vase and spearhead
finials to bars, lock rail band with diamond pattern, dogbars below. Outer
piers: rustication as main piers, surmounted by stepped cornice with small
seated animal supporting a shield. Short length of wall of finely laid
ashlar, flat, slightly projecting coping, ramped up to lodge. Inner pair of
lodge houses: rusticated plinth and quoins. Advanced central 24-pane window
set in an architrave flanked by Doric columns, each having 2 bands of
rustication; entablature and triangular corniced pediment above.
Modillioned eaves cornice with blocking course and corner piers surmounted
by ball finials. Shallow pyramidal roof with central corniced stack. Each
ramped wall linking the inner and outer lodge houses is approximately 10
metres long and 2.5 metres high, with central 6-panel door in an architrave
with pediment surmounted by large vase urn,flanked by plain piers. Flat
coping with ball finials over the piers. Outer lodge houses: central round-
headed 6-panel double door in a deeply rusticated archway with keystone and
triangular pediment. Flanking tripartite sashes in architraves with
cornices; the outer half-bays of the building project slightly and contain
arched recesses. Eaves band, wooden gutter brackets to centre, hipped roof,
banded central stack. The outer lengths of screen walls are similar to
those between the lodges. End pier: the recessed corners of rusticated
ashlar, central niche with projecting sill. The deep entablature has a
central rusticated panel, deep cornice and flanking S-scroll blocks. Small
vase and cushion finial. Rear: the inner lodge facades are similar to the
front, but lacking the rustication; the sides away from the drive have 2
circular windows lighting the first floor. The right-hand lodge has a 6-
panel door facing the drive, the left lodge doorway faces away from the
drive. Interiors not inspected at resurvey. William Belwood's design for
the inner lodges and gates survive, the outer lodges are possibly not part
of the original design but do contain features similar to the stables (qv).
The main gates and vase finials probably date from the c1870 re-ordering of
the grounds by Lady Mary Vyner. J Low, William Belwood, Architect and
Surveyor", Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, 56, 1984, p 140.
