Statement of Interest

B Group with Prestongrange House, Prestongrange House Boundary Walls, Prestongrange House North Lodge and Prestongrange House South Lodge (see separate listings). Listed primarily for the quality of the gate arch, and possible association with W H Playfair's work on Prestongrange House, 1830-50 (see separate listing). The gate arch is of similar design to that at Prestongrange House East Lodge (see separate listing).
