SJ 31 SE SJ 3587 1325 ALBERBURY WITH LOTON DEER PARK CARDESTON C.P. 5/46 Former hunting lodge - approx. 600 metres to north-west of Park Lodge

- II*

Hunting lodge, now disused. Circa 1675. Rendered coursed Alberbury breccia rubble with red sandstone ashlar dressings; pyramidal slate roof. Square plan, cubic proportions. 2 storeys. Chamfered plinth, cyma-recta moulded string; external lateral stack to south-west, top remodelled in mid- to late C19 with pair of octagonal ashlar shafts, now truncated. 2-light double-chamfered mullioned square windows with cruciform ashlar dressings beneath, ground-floor window to north-west blocked with red brick; small circular windows flanking stack on each floor, that on ground floor to right enlarged at a later date; 2 rectangular ground-floor windows to south-east flanking entrance with roll-moulded surround, large lintel with triangular-arched head and C19 boarded door. Interior: C17 roof with red-ochre colouring, raised lozenge and oval decoration on purlins, and mid- to late C19 machine-sawn king-post truss; chamfered ground-floor spine beam; C17 stone fireplaces on ground- and first-floors with moulded triangular-arched surrounds, deep friezes, and cyma-recta moulded cornices; C17 dog-leg corner staircase with winders, moulded closed string, shaped splat balusters, moulded grip rail and square top newel post with moulded finial; the lower flight of the staircase has been rebuilt in the mid- to late C19. The render has now largely fallen off the rubble walling but it is likely that it was always part of the original design. Graded II* as a generally unaltered example of a rare building type. Park Lodge is not included on this list.
