National Trust: Lodge Park
John 'Crump' Dutton built this 17th century grandstand, fuelled by his passion for deer coursing, gambling, banqueting and entertaining.
Lodge Park became the National Trust's first restoration project in 1998 and relied on archaeological evidence to return the building to its former glory. It's situated approximately two and a half miles from the village of Sherborne and the wider Sherborne estate, the other side of the A40.
