Tristford's Western Lodge around 100 years ago. The house was probably backed by massive beech and sweet chestnut trees. The roof of the open verandah and the gable end facing the road were covered in copper sheeting painted white. Around 80 lbs of copper were found concealed beneath wany-edged elm on the gable end when roofing and other work was carried out in 1991.
