History:
T.L was built in 1904 and was the home of Lt .Col. H. Jodrell who subsequently passed away in 1950. The Lodge was then turned into a special school in various guises for children for the Local Education Authority. This Lodge replaced an earlier T. Lodge originally built further up the valley. It was a mixed boys/girls school for disruptive or emotionally disturbed children who stayed at the school during the week and were allowed home at the weekend (if they had one). The children with no home usually went to Taxal Edge which was more of a borstal near by.
The Lodge closed it's doors finally in 2005 and was secured but obviously 'people' have been in - as is the norm - and taken out the fire places and other things. However there is still a personal sense to the building especially in the games room which has items still on the wall to do with depression etc...and also the wonderfully brightly painted bedrooms upstairs.
Sadly there was a fire in 2012 which damaged a large portion of the outbuildings.
