Laing-Trengove, D., 2013, Meadow Park Lodge, Castle Hill, Filleigh, Devon (Report - Assessment). SDV351537.

The Lodge was constructed circa 1845 as part of a reorganisation of the landscape and remodelling of the house at Castle Hill, in a style that echoes the design of elements of Castle Hill House itself including the stucco banding and sandstone detailing. The building is mainly of a single phase, with an added late 19th century bathroom extension and a 20th century kitchen extension. The lodge was initially constructed from well made handmade brick, with sandstone frames to the window openings and some sandstone sills, a projecting cornice and some stonework at the base of the front door opening, and all except the initially less visible elevations were rendered with stucco banding to the first floor and raised stucco quoins to corners and openings. See report for full details.
