Statement of Interest

William Burn worked at Hoddom in 1826 but (apart from the

stack) the style is unlike Burn's. Previously listed in error as

Hoddom Castle, Visitor's Centre (Former Bridgend Lodge). The

lodge lies in a loop in the parish of boundary and not as previously thought

in Cummertrees Parish.
