Pippingford Park- lodge. NE gable of original stone building, near N angle. Securely gated. Owner showed me the FB, and his impressive collection of potted Fuschias! Apparently the lodge was nearly demolished a few years ago after the slate roof was stolen. Has been restored & extended, FB untouched.
