The boundary wall was rebuilt in 1836 contemporary with the erection of the present house for the third Lord Newborough by the architect, Edward Haycock of Shrewsbury. East Lodge is integral to the wall and is very similar in style to the now ruined Upper Lodge; both are likely to be contemporary with the wall itself.
