What a lovely building. Does anyone know who built it, when and for what reason? Is it just a house or does it have a duty?

Very unusual.

'Geramount Lodge' ornamental gate house for the now roofless mansion house of Geramount which is behind it. Both built, I believe, by Traill Urquhart, who was an MP. The Lodge is not in such good condition now. The last people to actually live there were Joe and Lynn Campion, probably back in the late 1970's or early 80's.
