Statement of Interest

Hycroft Lodge is a good, early to mid 19th century Italianate style lodge with associated former office range occupying a prominent location at High Street and Lodge Walk. The ball-finialled gatepiers probably came from the earlier 18th century Elie Lodge (demolished 1807). The elaborately carved armorial panel set in the garden wall appears to be of at least early 18th century origin and is probably also associated with Capatin James Kyd who built Elie Lodge.
