Full Description

A lodge house with gate piers and walls that were built c.1910, probably by Walter Tapper. They were built for the Miller-Mundys of Shipley Hall (see SMR 25309). The lodge house is built of randomly coursed sandstone with sandstone dressings, and has a steeply pitched stone slate, cruciform plan roof with a large central stone stack. The roof also has chamfered stone copings on plain kneelers to the gables. The house is square in plan with single wide gabled bays each side. It is of a single storey plus attics. The south elevation has a central six-light recessed and ovolo moulded mullion window, with leaded lights and returned hoodmould. To either side, at each corner, is a semi-circular arch with a moulded edge. These arches are repeated on all facades so that each corner has a small covered area with arches to two sides. Within the eastern arch is a moulded doorcase with a studded wooden door facing south. Facing west within the western arch is a two-light recessed and ovolo moulded mullion window. In the gable above is a five-light mullion window similar to that below, and over this is a central plaque, in rusticated surround, decorated with the crest of the Mundys. East and west elevations have similar style two-light mullion windows above and below, and ventilation slits in the top of the gables. (1)
