Bridell Lodge, originally called Dene House, was a late-19th century house situated on Regent's Park Road, opposite the entrance to Clifton Road. It was purchased by William Burrough Hill in c.1911, who renamed it in honour of local-born artist Frederick Lee Bridell. The gardens, which were extensive, included a scale model of Stonehenge (image 2) and a number of smaller buildings which housed specialist collections. One, the Elephant House, contained a large collection of model elephants. Burrough Hill died in 1941 and the house later became a hotel.
