Porter's Lodge and Residence Court, 1796 - 1797 (40)

The Porter's Lodge and Residence Court were the first buildings built within the newly enclosed north-east site. The Porter's Lodge was constructed at the same time as the screen wall and served as the gated entrance from Lothbury Street to Lothbury Court. The Residence Court, designed between late 1796 and January 1797, was built just inside the screen wall to the west of the entrance. It contained apartments for the Accountant and Deputy Accountant. The apartments' Wyatt windows overlooked a private courtyard. See M 1287 for a model of the windows.
