NU1035 : Lodge and gateway near Belford

taken 14 years ago, near to Middleton, Northumberland, England

Lodge and gateway near Belford
Lodge and gateway near Belford
Lodge and somewhat over-the-top gateway to Middleton Hall. Perhaps dating from around 1871 when David Brandon designed the house. Neo-Tudor and of rock-faced stone with paler stone dressings. The gateway has crenellations and machicolations, no doubt so that the Victorian owner could imagine himself a medieval knight besieged by Picts or similar assailants.
The sign advertises a development opportunity comprising various estate buildings.
