Historical Note 
Barton Lodge has strong local historical links, however is not Listed. It was General Sir Arthur Benjamin Clifton who, in 1839, had Barton Lodge built at the entrance to the village. The house was described in White's directory of 1844 as a beautiful mansion occupying a commanding eminence on the eastern side of the village. As Lieutenant General Colonel of the 1st Royal Dragoon, he fought in the battle of Waterloo and for his heroic deeds was awarded the KCB (Knight Commander of the Order of Bath). In 1837, he succeeded his brother as squire and it is thought The Lodge at Barton was built as a Dower house, although his mother never went to live there in the end. Lord Clifton was a great friend of the Byron family, particularly Admiral Byron from Newstead Abbey, and there is an avenue in the grounds of the Lodge known as Admiral's Walkway.
