Quick Reference

In the Middle Ages small and simple hunting lodges provided temporary accommodation for a lord and his party. Between the 16th and 18th centuries lodges were fashionable retreats set in a park. Some were rebuildings of old hunting lodges, others were new structures of superior quality and unusual design, often on new sites. Some monastic granges, e.g. those of Fountains Abbey, were also known as lodges.
