Appraisal

An attractive, small-scale gate lodge that retains some of its original form and massing, together with some of the early character. The gate lodge, together with the attendant gateway (22811043/WD-32-11-43), is of particular significance for its contribution to the Woodhouse estate, and forms an appealing feature in the landscape.
