Notes

Lulworth castle North Lodges and adjacent area of park walls, situated on a gentle north east facing slope, to the north of Lulworth Castle. The North Lodges which are Listed Grade II*, date to 1785 and mark the northern entrance to the park formerly associated with Lulworth Castle. It comprises two lodges of two-storeys, which flank a main gateway. The structures are all ashlar faced, with brick backing. The two lodges are each triangular in plan, with a rounded turret at each corner. The front has an embattled parapet, with moulded cornice below. The entrance doors are situated on the northern side and are associated with windows in flat wall faces. The two lodges lie on each side of a gateway, which consists of two narrow openings with segmental heads, flanked by stone piers from which plain wrought iron gates are hung. The stone piers each have a round headed niche below an oval panel which bears the Weld Arms (to the north) and the date 1785 to the south. The lodges and gateway form part of an extended facade comprising approximately 55 metre lengths of park wall terminated and punctuated by six round towers, 1.8 metres in diameter and 4.5 metres high. Scheduled.
