Lodge to Hornby Castle (q.v.), with walls and gate piers, mid C19th. Snecked sandstone rubble. Lodge has steep slate roof behind an embattled parapet. 2 storeys. The windows have upper lights with Tudor-arched heads and a drip course over each storey. A canted projection faces west towards the road. On the ground floor its central window is mullioned and transomed and of 6 lights. At each side is a 2-light window with transom. The canted sides are blank on the 1st floor, which has a central cross window. The doorway is in a 2-storey projecting porch on the right-hand return wall. At the rear is a circular embattled turret. Chimney on centre of ridge. The gate piers, to the right of the lodge, are of sandstone ashlar. The central pair have weathered plinths of square plan, with the upper part of the pier chamfered to an octagon in 2 stages. Each is surmounted by a moulded cap with crenellation and a tapering top with iron finial. On each of the main faces is a carved roundel, including figures of a cat and a rat. The central pair of piers is flanked by a smaller pair with similar, but less elaborate, detail. Concave walls, with a string course and embattled parapet, link the lodge to its adjacent gate pier, and flank the group to form the entrance to the drive.
