Appraisal

This is a modest gate lodge retaining interesting fabric, such as the timber sash windows and the castellated addition, the latter in keeping with the nature of the country hosue served by the lodge. Together with the accompanying gateway, it forms a pleasing approach to Duarrigle Castle and its demesne.
