"Wheatly" Gate Lodge

"Wheatly" Gate Lodge - early 1950s - soon to be demolished.
    In 1895 the courtyard at "Wheatly"was enclosed on three sides with additions in the style of the original house. On the west side  a brick two-story gate lodge with central entrance archway, as well as a wing extension containing a ballroom and a schoolroom was added. 

    Fragments of the complex remain. The land surrounding the main court was divided - the former chapel, staff cottage, and two side wings of the main house all survive as separate residences. Click HERE for learn more about "Wheatly" and the gate lodge.
