The north-west projection contains a stone staircase with plain wrought-iron balustrade. The south-west pro- jection is said by the owner to have been the lodge-keeper's sleeping accommo- dation. The lodge is notable for its original and non-historicist use of Gothic and Classical forms. Drawings of the lodge survive in the Soane Museum.
