Castle Lodge, sometimes called simply The Lodge, is situated at 324 Portswood Road. It was built in c.1780 for General Stibbert as an entrance lodge to Portswood House, a large country house which stood just to the north of the present day Lawn Road. Portswood House was demolished in 1852, since when the Lodge has been used as a dwelling house, a blacksmiths and more recently as a car sales office.
