Turner bought the land, in the deep countryside in 1807. He designed the house and it was built by 1813, as Solus Lodge. This was his country retreat and a home for his father William (1745–1829). Turner lived here 1814 -1826 when he sold it. His friend Sir John Soane may have influenced the design.

This delightful little house is open to the public.
