2/41 Cumberland Lodge
at entrance to E
- drive to Gilston Park

- II

Lodge. '1855' in quatrefoil datestone on W gable. For John
Hodgson of Gilston Park presumably by P C Hardwick who built the
main house for Hodgson in 1852. Coursed limestone rubble with
ashlar dressings similar to Gilston Park and unusual in
Hertfordshire. Steep slate roofs and slate slabs as roof over
bay window. Arcaded wooden porch. Moulded dripmould with carved
leaf terminals over bay window similar to that over new S door of
parish church restored by P C Hardwick in 1852. An ornate Tudor
style single storey gate lodge facing N onto the drive. Main
range E-W with 2 gabled wings of different projection to S.
Central gabled projection on N with large canted bay window
commanding the drive, 2-bay Gothic timber porch in angle on E,
and heavy cusped bargeboards with carved roundels near lower
edge. E gable to road has coat of arms. 2- and 3-light square-
headed windows with cast iron diamond lattice casements.
Bargeboards each vary in decoration. An interesting ornamental
Tudor gate lodge of 1855 presumably by P C Hardwick as part of
his work on the Gilston Park Estate. The main seat of the
Hodgson family was at Bowness in Cumberland, hence the name of
the lodge to differentiate it from the older South Lodge in
Eastwick parish.
