Bladon Lodge stood on the north side of Winchester Road, almost opposite the junction with Wilton Road. From 1843 to his death in 1879 it was the home of local artist William Shayer, who named it after his wife’s mother, Mary Bladon. It was a substantial dwelling set in large garden with stables and a coach house. It was demolished some time after World War Two. Bladon Road was named after the house, although it is situated some way to the west of the actual site.
