HISTORICAL NOTE: JB Papworth came to Cheltenham in 1824 at the
invitation of Dr Schoolbred, for whom he designed Rosehill
(since greatly altered). Farnley Lodge is significant in that
it shows close similarities with the Rosehill designs. Shown
and named on Merrett's Map of 1834. Verey notes 'a pleasant
detached tetrastyle Ionic portico', now missing.
Undergoing renovations and restorations at time of Review.
