In the garden of Lime Grange is a small round building, built of stone with a stone roof. This was the Gunpowder Magazine of Curtis and Harvey, and was listed as such in Kelly's 1881 directory. It has been used more recently as a summer house, the two windows in it probably having been added later for this purpose. (1) In the garden of Lime Grange, a small round stone house, possibly of 1827 date. It was a dovecot in the 1960s. (2) The circular building is shown as 'Summer House' on the 1880 OS map, which calls into question the Kelly's 1881 directory reference given by Authority 1 above. 'Magazines' are depicted c. 90m to the east [see SMR 24760]. (3) Later maps show the circular building but do not record a function. (4, 5)
