Type of record:Building
Name:Icknield Lodge (formerly Gardener's Cottage), Coach House and stables


Icknield Lodge was originally a timber-framed building, dating to the early 16th century. All that remains of this building is the returned gable-end which is of flint with medieval brick diapering. The original frame was replaced with an early to mid 17th century timber-framed hall, axial stack and two-storey parlour block. The timber frame was largely replaced by brick in the early 18th century to the principal facade and and with rubble and brick to the rear in the 19th century. The house was extended and heightened in the 19th century.
The coach house and stables of Hilborough Hall, NHER 2717, date to the late 18th century with a late 19th century sawmill and chimney.
