Loppington House (also known as Loppington Hall, Loppington Villa)5736

Loppington, England, Shropshire

Brief Description

Loppington House (then known as Loppington Villa) had a park by 1827, which was slightly less extensive both to north and south than it was later in the 19th century. By this time, there was an obelisk to the north of the house, on the far side of the pond. There is an avenue which leads to Lyneal lodge, both of which are later than 1879. Pevsner also notes a square summerhouse on the garden wall.
