SJ 33 NW
2/11 Lady's Bridge Lodge
Lodge. Probably c.1808-12 for Charlotte, Lady Dungannon; later additions
and alterations. Roughly coursed cobblestones from nearby river and tree
trunks acting as wall posts; slate roof with fretted bargeboards and carved
pendants. U-plan with slightly later full-length lean-to to rear; Rustic
Gothic style. Single storey. Ogee-headed windows to gables and to
outer walls, latter retaining latticed lights. Central nail-studded plank
door in pointed wood surround. 2 prominent integral stacks to back wall.
Lean-to to rear, constructed of uncoursed limestone rubble except fort cobble-
stones on side facing river, may be slightly later but also has pointed Gothic
windows, one with Y-tracery and latticed lights. According to an inscription
at Brynkinalt (Clwyd) Lady Dungannon 'embellished' the associated park between
c. 1808 and 1812 and it is likely that the lodge was built as part of this
scheme. Edward Hubbard, The Buildings of Wales, Clwyd (1986) pp. 112-13.
