Appraisal

This simple yet attractive former gate lodge, once associated with Clermont Park and situated to the north of Saint Paul's Church, is a good surviving example of early nineteenth-century architecture. Its modest, balanced, proportions and moulded detailing make it an appealing feature of the rural roadside and its architectural form acts as a reminder of its original use.
