Two identical single storey lodges. C1820-40. Rendered brick with stone dressings. 4-columned arcade in front of doorway, and angle pilasters to road front are all fluted Doric with a triglyph frieze which forms a parapet to a small hipped roof with central ashlar stack. Door and sash windows all have stone architraves. Alignment note quite parallel to drive increases the perspective down the drive. Curved flanking walls are also rendered and terminate in piers with ball finials. Wrought iron gates, the principal pair flanked by 2 pedestrian gates, all with spear head decoration. Cast iron trellis-work gate piers with ball finials. One of the lodges bears the date 1821. Although their style links them with Burn?s work on the house, they may therefore predate this, and are possibly by Wilkins, who had been employed to make some alterations, c1805.
