Full Description

A Grade II listed entrance lodge built as a gatehouse to Babington Hospital [SMR17059], which was originally designed as a workhouse for the Belper Union by architect, Giles Scott. A two-storey building built in the Jacobean style of ashlar with quoins and a slate roof, and a centre round arch over a carriageway with oriel window above, this set under a gable with finials. There is a window at each side of the arch with latticed iron glazing, end stone chimney-stacks and coped gable ends to the roof. Thought to be circa 1838 but not shown on the Belper Tithe Map of 1844, so possibly circa 1845-50? (1)
