roughly-squared stone with cut dressings; slate roof. South elevation 2
storeys, 4 irregular bays. Bay 2 doorway in late C19 wooden porch, and

The heraldry suggests the bunting lodge was built by Thomas Smithson

In 1654 it served as a Baptist meeting house, one of the earliest in the
North of England.
