Brockenhurst Park - North Lodge

North Lodge
North Lodge

North Lodge is situated on Mill Lane - the B3055, not far from the railway line, and at the end of a track running north-west from Brockenhurst House.

North Lodge is an extravagantly ornate, brick-built, 19th century chateau-style gatehouse belonging to Brockenhurst Park.

The Morant coat of arms can be seen in the centre above the archway, whilst living quarters are on the right hand side, and over the gateway.

North Lodge was designed by the influential Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse (1830-1905), who was particularly associated with the Gothic revival in building styles, and use of Renaissance features.

** New Forest ponies and other animals**
The New Forest
Commoners' ponies, cattle, pigs, sheep and donkeys are a popular part of the New Forest scene, but during 2019 agisters attended 159 road traffic accidents involving these animals, a small but disappointing increase on the 154 accidents attended in 2018.

Sadly, 58 animals were killed - 35 ponies, 13 cows, 8 donkeys and 2 sheep, whilst a further 32 were injured - 3 pigs, 9 donkeys, 11 cows and 9 ponies.

(Forty-three accidents occurred in daylight, 15 at twilight and 101 in the dark. Twenty-seven accidents were not reported by the driver involved).

Here's just one horrific example - Three donkeys killed in collision with van at notorious New Forest blackspot (Advertiser and Times)
