Tower lodge. Gateway with flanking gatehouse at the south entrance to great fulford house. Early c19. Granite ashlar gateway, roughcast gatehouses, formerly stuccoed. Gothic style. A chamfered 4-centred archway with a battlemented parapet is flanked by octagonal turrets with machicolated embattled parapets and 2 blind slits to the front. Single storey 1 room gatehouses on either side have embattled parapets concealing lean-to roofs, and one 2-light window to the front with a hoodmould. The right-hand gatehouse is heated with a chimney stack at the right end. A pair of iron gates is probably contemporary with the building with diagonal struts below the middle rail and arrowhead finials above the top rail. A nice example of a small gothic gate entrance (doe).
