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, concrete tile, 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 wide gabled bays each side. It is of a single storey plus attics. The north elevation has a 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 two-light recessed mullion window. Within the western one is a moulded doorcase with a studded wooden door facing north, and a two-light mullion window facing west. In the gable above is a five-light mullion window similar to that below, and over this is a central plaque with the crest of the Mundy family set in a rusticated surround. Other elevations are similar with two and three-light recessed and chamfered mullion windows and thin ventilation slits to the top of the gables. (1)
The gate piers and walls are built of ashlar and rubble sandstone. There is a central pair of tall square gate piers, with moulded bases and cornices and topped by large ball finials. They also have broad pilasters to the sides with scrolled tops. Between, are a pair of wooden gates that curve downwards to the centre. To either side of the piers are random rubble walls, with flat copings, which also curve down in a semi-circular shape. These have smaller square piers to either end, with only that to the south still with its ball finial. Beyond, to the south, is another section of wall with a semi-circular dip in. Attached to the northern pier is a lower random rubble wall, which runs westwards and has chamfered copings. (2)
