Triumphal arch and attached buildings. Late C18, probably the
arch built in 1783 for John Parker of Saltram House, Merafield
Road (qv) as an eye-catcher to be seen from the house and
based on a design by Robert Adam. Red brick with stucco
surviving to the screen wall left of the arch, and some stone
dressings. Wide arch with flanking screen walls plus a small
lodge built behind the left-hand screen wall and a lean-to
behind the other screen wall.
Tall round arch with projecting keystone flanked by paired
pilasters and the whole surmounted by a Doric entablature and
a parapet with moulded cornice and a central niche. The arch
is flanked by lower screen walls with end pilasters and with
pilastered window openings with entablature (now blocked).
Lodge is now roofless and has blocked window openings; brick
stack to the gable end.
