The main landmarks of Burtons’ St Leonards.

Baston Lodge


Just above North Lodge is Baston Lodge, built by Decimus Burton in 1850. This building has a strong Italian influence.

Gloucester Lodge


This building was originally named the Castellated Villa, but was renamed Gloucester Lodge after its first occupant, Princess Sophia of Gloucester. The stunning building overlooks St Leonards gardens from the North.

North Lodge


North Lodge spans Upper Maze Hill and was

originally built as a tollgate at the Northern entrance to St Leonards. Built by James Burton in 1830 to a mock Gothic castellated style. A toll road ran from here and joined up with the main London to Hastings Road. 


North Lodge became the family home to Jane Wood, James Burton’s daughter, and a later resident was Henry Rider Haggard who wrote King Solomon’s Mines amongst other well known works.


The archway became damaged by a large vehicle in 2002 and following its repair has remained closed to vehicles since.
