Statement of Interest

B-Group with Culross Park House, Culross Park Lodge Cottage and Boundary Walls. Built as a gate lodge to Culross Park House presumably when the later wing was added to the house. (The lodge and wing of Culross Park House are not depicted on the 1860 OS Map). Despite a number of extensions, the original structure retains its gable finials, diagonally-set stacks and chamfered skews, and forms part of the Culross Park House estate. The adjacent gatepiers and walls are listed separately.
