Description:This Christmas postcard sent in 1913 shows one of the two lodges on the Westwood Hall estate. It was built in 1852 by John Davenport II, the owner of the Hall as part of a scheme of improvement on his land. When this photograph was taken the Hall and grounds belonged to Mr. H.J. Johnson. He sold the estate to Staffordshire County Council in 1920, and the Hall was turned into Westwood Hall County High School for Girls. Today the lodges are occupied as private homes.
