The lodge, above Longshaw Pond, where the pictures below were taken, was built about 1827 to provide a retreat for the Duke of Rutland's shooting guests, amongst whom were King George V and the Duke of Wellington. During the Geat War, it became a convalescent home for wounded soldiers. After it came into the hands of the National Trust, it was let for a while as a 'Holiday Fellowship' guest house. In 1969, it was converted into private flats. There is a nation Trust car park on site with a visitor centre and cafe.
The pond, where the pictures below were taken, was used to gather large blocks of ice in winter months - the underground ice house was only re-discovered recently - it is still a little "hidden away" at the back of the house - near similarly partly hidden - and disused, swimming pool - used after shooting parties by guests at the lodge!

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
-UK Outlook for Monday 28 Jan 2019 to Wednesday 6 Feb 2019:
Cold and showery conditions are likely at first on Monday, ahead of thicker cloud and rain, perhaps preceded by snow, which is expected to move eastwards later in the day. Cold and showery weather will probably make a return on Tuesday. Beyond there, the broad signal is for the unsettled period of the weather to continue, with further bands of rain and hill snow moving east or southeast across the UK, interspersed with brighter showery interludes. Snow remains a risk, mostly in the north, but perhaps further south too, and frosts could be quite widespread. There is still a chance that even colder conditions may develop later in the period with winds swinging round to the east or northeast, bringing an increased possibility of snow.
UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Feb 2019 to Thursday 21 Feb 2019:
This period will most likely start changeable and cold, with spells of rain and hill snow, occasional stronger winds, and brighter showery interludes. As we head further through February there is an increased chance of seeing very cold conditions developing with a greater probability of northeasterly or easterly winds. This will bring an increased risk of widespread, perhaps severe frosts as well as snow, especially in eastern areas. In this scenario the driest conditions will be across the west and northwest, whilst the south could see wetter and occasionally milder spells, bringing the risk of some significant snow, but only if very cold air becomes established across much of the UK.------------------------
