Grand Lodge

Grand Lodge, the impressive entrance to Heaton Park.

Grand Lodge, the impressive entrance to Heaton Park.  When the owners of great country houses built such grand entrances to their parks it was with the intention of creating a grand impression of their estates.  The visitor came through the grand gateway and was then treated to a long drive through the park, which they could admire, until at last they caught site of their destination, the big house.  Today Grand Lodge is a minor entrance, used only by pedestrians and cyclists.

  1. I notice the Old Town Hall has a similar appearance as the Grand Lodge, but how was it big enough to represent a town hall?
