HER Description

NEHL - Supposedly the 18th century bowling green which once occupied the site of the Phoenix Lodge is in the cellar under the Lodge room. "The North wall of the cellar is part of the original South wall of the stables in which can be seen windows and a door with steps leading out onto the bowling green." Twitter user @DaveFromUpNorth visited the building a couple of decades ago, stating it's impossible to stand up in the cellar thanks to it being so low.
