Deerpark Lodge, also known as Middle Lodge, was built c1888 on the original access driveway first laid out by William Emes in the 1760s.
The lodge is built in a Tudor Domestic style of timber framing with white painted infill panels, set on a stone plinth wall. Ruabon type red tile roof, sprocketed over the front verandah. L-plan, with a boarded door in the angle under an open verandah supported on timber posts. Three and 4-light paned timber windows. The framing is decorative, and includes curved braces within the panels. Stone stack on the E gable end with offsetting steps and a brick flue, a fire window at the side facing up the road. The rear is gabled above battered stone walls taking up the steeply falling ground to the S.
Included as a picturesque late C19 lodge, which forms part of the park improvements of the later C19, and of group value with the deer park wall.
