Lodge (formerly listed
11.10.85 as Merrions Wood Lodge)
Lodge to Great Barr Hall (qv). 1854. Attributed to George Gilbert Scott.
Rendered brick with some sandstone dressings and tile roof. Single storey.
Windows have trefoiled ogee lights. North-west front has gable at left.
Under this is a canted bay window with tile roof, with three lights to the
front and one to each side. The stone gutter has carved figures at the
corners. Above is a narrow opening with a sandstone band above. This is
inscribed: "MDCCCLIIII". To the right the main part of the facade is of
one bay with a 2-light window. To its left is a chimney. Coped gables.
Set back to the left is a wing with a gable facing north-east, towards the
drive. This gable wall has a 3-light window. Chimney on left-hand wall.
To the right, in the angle with the front part of the lodge, is a single-
storey gabled timber porch with carved bargeboards. An old photograph,
taken before the building was rendered, shows polychrome brickwork in a
diaper pattern. G G Scott was a personal friend of the (unrelated) Scott
family of Great Barr Hall and is known to have carried out work on the estate.
