Full description

Easton Lodge.
'The Lodge on Easton Heath, commonly called Easton Lodge, seems to be an ancient building, and exceeding strong, but I take it to be no more than designed for its present used, and was built so, to survey the heath, and resist the weather, which it stands much exposed to, it being formerly the lodge of the gamekeeper of Cossey Manor'.
Information from (S1).

Quoted also in (S2) and adds 'is now the residence of Mr. Forster'.

Present building, listed, is Georgian with Victorian wings. Flint and brick formerly with classical pediment. (S3) states wings were added after 1776 and that no traces of older building remain inside.
E. Rose (NAU), 30 March 1981 and 17 June 1983.
