Statement of Interest

Elvingston South Lodge is a good example of a 19th century purpose-built gate lodge prominently sited on a major roadway which, along with the associated gatepiers and quadrant walls, makes a significant contribution to the street and landscape. Despite it no longer being on a direct access route to Elvingston House, the lodge maintains its functional and historic association to the mansion.

Elvingston House, Dovecot and Stables, to the N, and East Lodge are listed separately.

Information supplied by the current owner suggests that sections of what may have been a third gate pillar lies half buried on the property, (2011).
