House, formerly one of a pair of lodges to The Mount (home of Josiah Spode). Circa 1810.

Yellow brick with ashlar portico and plain tiled roof. low 2-storeyed, with full-height portico of Doric column supporting pediment at east end, over doorway. Fenestration in north elevation renewed. Later extension to the west.


In 1859 Fredrick Bishop (who had purchase the Mount Estate in 1856 for housing development on the land) began to prepare the rest of the estate for development by building a road from Penkhull to Hartshill which in the 1870's was named Princes Road. 

The laying out of this road involved moving one of the lodges built by Spode at Hartshill, the abandonment of the drive built in 1829-30, and the re-construction of the lodge and a new drive to Princes Road.
