Statement of Interest

Built as a lodge for the multi-period Grange House, now much altered and currently used as a nursing home (2004). Grange House is situated to the NW and the lodge is somewhat of a curiosity as the intended road between it and Grange House was never built. It is, nevertheless, a good example of a mid 19th lodge in the then fashionable Jacobean style and has local importance as one of the few largely intact reminders of the Grange Estate in the immediate area.
