These are of five and seven bays,three storeys, rendered, each with a central pediment. Stockdale noted that it was‘situated on the northern borders of the parish, is chiefly remarkable as commanding avariety of the most extensive prospects`. The pair of gateposts with ball finials and the lodge mark the entrance to Hemerdon House, and a gently curving carriage drive through the parkland leads to the house; this detailed composition was designed to impress.
