Statement of Special Interest
Eustace Balfour worked in partnership with Thackeray
Turner of the SPAB, and trained in London with Basil
Champneys. Balfour executed several other works on the
Estate, but as he died on 14 February 1911, the lodge
was possibly designed solely by Turner. The boat-shaped
dormers on Tower Cottage nearby (listed separately), evidence
a similar Arts and Craft input.
