sad to say, in contrast with yesterday's sweet little cottage, this gate lodge outside of Lisburn, has slowly been left to fall apart.
Gate lodges are architecturally important and were built before the days of intercoms and WiFi etc, so a gate keeper was employed to secure entry to important estates and manors.
The last remaining lattice window pane in the mullioned window. Wouldn't it have been a very pretty lodge?
It does have a new sign though!
