TQ7057 : Stone-built lodge, Blacklands

taken 10 months ago, near to East Malling, Kent, Great Britain

Stone-built lodge, Blacklands
Stone-built lodge, Blacklands
According to the Listing, this was once a gate-lodge for Clare House Park. Close to New Road, it has survived amid modern residential development.

The neatly-squared blocks are most likely Kentish ragstone - though that material more often takes the form of irregular angular blocks when used for small buildings. The Gothick details are typical of the period 1790-1820.
