An old photo showing Aston Bridge Hill Lodge at The Pludds in the Forest of Dean

The House that John Vaughan lived in before Sallow Vallets.

Geoff Waygood wrote articles on the Forest Lodges in The New Regard, No 18 (2003) and No 19 (2004).

It continued to be let throughout the First World War to various tenants - mainly Crown labourers or colliers. It was demolished in the early 1960s ..."
