The Horsingdon Transmissions No.75: The Old Lodge
The Old Lodge: one of James Boreham's holdings, located on the outskirts of the Nortwich Park district. The house had undergone significant renovation in the 1970s, changing its character radically; by the 1990s the property was deemed unsaleable in the wake of a number of mysterious deaths on the premises. In 1998, the Old Lodge was entirely destroyed by fire. In the aftermath of the conflagration, a series of collapsed tunnels were discovered beneath the ruins. These were quickly filled in by the emergency services who attended the incident.
The photo above dates from around 1900, and depicts the Old Lodge in its pristine state. The young girl in the photo is supposedly James Boreham's daughter. Careful analysis of the photograph has revealed that the girl apparently has no face; a rugose, shapeless form also seems to be partially visible through the lattice window.
