Reason for Listing

Blagdon Lodge on the south-west shore of Blagdon Lake, Blagdon, Somerset, merits listing at Grade II for the following principal reasons:* Architectural interest and rarity: it is a good and relatively rare survival of a fishing lodge built in c1900 as part of the waterworks in Blagdon, to allow fishing on the reservoir for public enjoyment, displaying good quality architectural detailing. * Historic interest: it has a strong and interesting historic association with the Bristol Waterworks Company, whose philanthropic ambitions as expressed by its founders are expressed in its overall design. * Intactness: it has survived mostly intact. * Group value: it has strong and important group value with the associated contemporary pumping station and other waterworks structures at Blagdon.
