Gate Lodge


Continuing with my series on gate lodges, this is one of my favourites as it is so quaint and remains virtually untouched since the day it was built.

The blue paint on the window sills might however be more recent! However aren't those lattice windows just beautiful?


It seems to be lived in but what puzzles me most is how the electricity company was allowed to install a pole right in front of the cottage? Why?

  7. I love those windows! I agree about the pole. That does seem a rather unusual place to put it.

  9. Happy Ostara to you!!!

    What an interesting building. And occupied, so it is not going to ruin.

    Pole placed there, because they didn't complain, maybe????

  14. Architects always seem pull out all the stops to design something just a bit special for gatekeepers' lodges. This one is no exception.

  15. This is a beautiful little place, and I love it's shape! But that pole! It makes me think that someone is actually living there. They needed electricity, and also brightened it up with the blue paint.

  18. The windows are wonderful, we don't see those down here, well I haven't as yet.
    How silly to have that pole stuck there, someone didn't use their brain on that.

    But that electric pole does indeed detract from the beautiful whole.
