Gate Lodge Episode Guide

Former heavyweight boxing champion and cast member of Guy Ritchie's film, Snatch, Scott Welch has spent 20 years harbouring a dream that he would someday own Thorington Gate Lodge in Suffolk.


Undeterred by the fact it sits beside the busy A12 and he hasn't even seen the inside, Scott bought this tiny Georgian gem with plans to convert it into a weekend retreat so he can spend more time with his father who lives nearby.

Architect George Clarke uncovers the history of the lodge and designs an ultra-modern, contemporary extension to transform this miniature marvel into a 21st century home.

However, it soon becomes clear that Scott's fight to get planning permission will not be an easy win.
