Pictures From Susan Jaleel
At first we thought this was the lodge to the long gone Isolation hospital... but we have been informed by 'Hyde Lad' that this building is called Iddesleigh, and was built by the Bradley Family, who were a well known Godley family... they owned much of the land around Godley Green... He also says that the lodge was further back towards Gee Cross near to where Alder School is now... and I think I know now which building he means. If anyone as anything else to offer concerning the above home or indeed the old lodge or hospital please do so.
The above picture shows the approximate location of the Isolation Lodge which was situated on Mottram Old Road. It was facing the row of houses.
This postcard shows the lodge on Grange Road South.
Is it the same building as the one above? I'm not convinced yet but it could just be the angle that the photo is taken from...
Incidentally , if you look on google maps at the houses on Mottram Old Road I've shown above that I thought were opposite the lodge , then the gateposts look similar to the ones on the "Mottram Old Road Lodge" photo. I know that could just be the style of the time though. (Sorry for the bad quality).
