Full Description

The entrance to the gas works was flanked by a pair of lodges of the second quarter of the 19th century. The W. lodge was a house probably for the Manager; the E. lodge was offices. The lodges are of two storeys with white brick walls and slated roofs; the principal parts of the street elevations each consist of one bay flanked by pilasters; between the pilasters each ground-floor window is or was round-headed and recessed, and small niches are recessed into the pilasters. Between the lodges are ashlar gate-piers.
