8/105 Willoughbridge Lodge
(formerly listed as
17/11/66 Willowbridge Lodge)

Former hunting lodge, now farmhouse. Originally built for the Gerard
family. Mid-C16, extended late C16 with later additions and alterations,
chiefly of early to mid-C19. Dressed sandstone rubble with ashlar
dressings, one range of C19 additions red brick, plain tiled roofs.
Earliest part a square tower with flanking gabled wings - probably
slightly later are the 2 front gabled wings at right angles to these;
long parallel C19 additions to rear. Tower: in 3 stages over cellar
with moulded string courses to second and third stages; 2 stepped
buttresses at corners to front, embattled parapet (partly renewed);
projecting rectangular stair turret to right with scale-patterned ogee
cap and globe finial; two 3-light mullioned windows to second and
third stages and 2 single-light openings (both with dripstones) to ground
floor on either side of flat-headed doorway, also with dripstone and C19
iron-studded door. Flanking 2-storeyed wings: of one bay in each
direction (note the better dressed masonry of the slightly later ones to
the front); 3-light mullioned windows with dripstones and coped stone
verges to gables (the globe finials now lie on the ground nearby);
sandstone ridge stack to left-hand front wing with on the wall below
an engraved stone commemorating the Great Cattle Plague of 1866. 2-storeyed
ranges at right angles to rear, the right-hand one of stone and probably
slightly earlier than the left-hand one of red brick, both with mid-C20
casements. Interior not inspected. A buttressed sandstone revetment
wall immediately to the north protects the terraced hill on which the
lodge stands. Magnificent views across the Cheshire Plain. B.O.E.,
