Cecil Lodge is thought to have originally comprised a small estate of approximately 11 acres and a summer ‘villa’ residence which was presented to Lord Cranborne as a wedding gift in 1773.

During the 19th century a succession of wealthy London businessmen occupied the lodge as their country retreat and between the years 1864-1872 the bookseller, W.H. Smith, bought the property.

In 1939, the lodge was ruinous and in 1947,174 of the trees in the grounds were felled to make way for the houses currently standing in Tibbs Hill Road and Summerhouse Way.
