SS91SE Knightshayes Lodge, gate piers and
848-1/7/12 quadrant walls
Lodge, gate piers and quadrant walls. Probably 1868, or soon
after, by William Burges. Squared stone rubble with details
probably in dressed Ham stone. Lodge has tiled roof with
crested ridge tiles (some missing); large stone rubble chimney
on cross-wing. Tudor style.
EXTERIOR: lodge designed to resemble a late medieval house
with single-storey hall range to right and 2-storey gable
cross-wing to left. Hall has 4-light mullioned and transomed
window to right, pointed arched doorway to left. Above them a
string course and a row of 3 shields with coats-of-arms.
Cross-wing has 5-light mullioned and transomed bay window in
ground storey, with canted sides and pent roof. 3-light
mullioned window in upper storey. Gable has flat coping with
kneelers and moulded apex; small round window in centre.
Left return (exposed to Bolham Lane) has a 6-light bay window
in ground storey, with square sides and pent roof. At eaves
level a string course, continued from front elevation. 2-light
gabled dormer in upper storey, with stone coping and kneelers.
Windows to both elevations have unmoulded stone surrounds and
small-paned glazing with margin panes, the glazing bars of
iron. Rear elevation of cross-wing similar to that at the
front, but without the bay window.
INTERIOR: not inspected but may retain features of interest.
SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: gate piers have rough-faced bases and
ashlar tops, the latter designed as pedestals with moulded
caps and bases, these finished with short flat-topped
pyramids. On the front of each pedestal is a shield carrying a
coat-of-arms. Quadrant walls of squared rubble with chamfered
copings of dressed rubble flank the gate piers.
