5/48 Chowley Lodge

4/1/1984 II

Lodge to Bolesworth Castle, 1868, Decorated, probably by Alfred Waterhouse, yellow sandstone with roof of banded shaped slates. Ornate castellated entrance contains a pair of wrought iron gates under an oak-ceiled archway surmounted by armorial bearings. Lodge-keeper's room (with shoulder-arched doorway flanked by mullioned windows of 2 lights) links gateway and 2-storey cottage of irregular form with corbelled corners, parapet and steep hipped roofs with a shaped dormer gable to inner side and a shaped, brick-topped stone chimney. A single-storey right wing to the cottage terminates in a wing-wall with shaped coping, blocked rear-access doorway and quadrant outer portion with terminal pier, capped with pyramid and ball. The wing wall left of the gateway is partly thrown down. The main window of each storey of the cottage, formerly of 3 trefoil lights, is replaced by a standard metal casement.
