Our exciting news is that Philip Aitkens, the celebrated historian and his brilliant research team have uncovered a new theory about the medieval roots of the Lodge. He is currently measuring and documenting the beams in the roof to present a new concept of what the original Lodge roof might have looked like. This is a key mystery about the Lodge and the fact that evidence remains, to piece together, is extremely encouraging. There is also a theory as to where the original entrance was and where the staircase was placed. If irrefutable and evidence-based, it will mean a total re-thinking of how the Lodge was originally used in 1472.
