On the 25th of January 2021 Oxford Archaeology East was commissioned by Croudace Homes to undertake a historic building survey at Levels 1 and 2 on the Town Lodge and No. 29 Gernon Road, Letchworth Garden City. Town Lodge is a large red brick building constructed as The Madonna Nursery and Preparatory School in 1923 which was later partially demolished and then extended to form Letchworth Council offices – Town Lodge – during the 1950s.
The building was found to be much altered with very little of its original form remaining. An adjacent bungalow known as No. 29 Gernon Road was also the subject of an historic buildings survey at Level 1. This building had also been much altered since it was first built.
