which passes through Shavington Park (Shavington Hall demolished 1959).
Richard Norman Shaw carried out alterations at Shavington Hall for Arthur
Pemberton Heywood-Lonsdale in 1885-6 but in 1903 Ernest Newton also worked
at the house and probably designed other estate buildings (Nos. 7 and 8
Shavington, Moreton Say C.P. q.v.) and it has been suggested (Dr. Richard
Morrice 1986) that he may have also designed the lodges. Andrew Saint,
