Statement of Interest

This is a distinctive piended-roofed former lodge, situated on the main road opposite the entrance to Kennox House and is a significant addition to the streetscape. The building retains the simple, picturesque details of vermiculated stone mullions and hoodmoulding which add considerable character to its principal elevation.

The lodge was an important and integral part of a 19th century estate, as visitors would pass it on their way to the main house. This one is situated directly across from the gates to Kennox House.
