We wrote to request that Trelaske Lodge, Lewannick in Cornwall be listed, and we are delighted that Historic England has now done so. The former lodge is now a Grade II-listed building.

The building is a charming Gothic Revival design built with local materials, nestling comfortably in the landscape. It was part of the improvements on the Trelaske estate in the Nineteenth Century and is the only part of that estate that now survives. A photograph from around 1900 shows the lodge much the same as it stands today. There is a Grade II-listed milestone opposite, that shows distances to Launceston and Lewannick, which is probably contemporary with the lodge.

The full list description and history of the lodge can be read here.
