Site Description Dimlands Lodge is a two storey lodge with roughly squared limestone rubble walls, castellated angle turrets and parapets on corbels, The stone tablets and coats of arms adorning the walls relate to salient events in the history of the family of the now demolished Dimlands House. It has square-headed window openings with dripstones and narrow turret openings with four-centred heads. The roofs are hidden behind the parapets.

It is included as a mid nineteenth century romantic lodge built for an important local family and designed possibly by Sir Matthew Digby Wyatt, brother-in-law to the Rev. Iltyd Nicholl, for whom he designed The Ham (now demolished).
