Birkby Lodge

Mid C19. Ashlar. Hipped slate roof. Two storeys. Shallow two-storey canted bay to left. Three ranges of sashes. Door in porch with Tuscan pilasters up flight of steps with vase-shaped balusters and moulded handrail. One more range of sashes to right, set back slightly. This part was re-modelled internally by the Manchester architect Edgar Wood in 1901, and (apparently) again about 15 years later. Externally his work consists of an oblong projection on the east side, flat-roofed and unornamented: a row of nine small oblong lights with lead glazing bars, two in each end elevation.

Interior: The hall appears to be part of the 1901 redecoration. Simple oak wainscotting, with tapering pilasters. Round-arched doorway with exaggerated plaster keystone flanked by art nouveau ornament. Imposts carved with art nouveau rose ornament. Door has stained glass panels with figures (whose outline is cut by the frame), art nouveau foliage, and the legends "Welcome Ever Smiles" and "Farewell Goes/Out Sighing" in art nouveau type.
