In the early 19th century, when the royal demesne of the Forest was replanted, 24 small lodges were established to house woodmen to guard and maintain the new inclosures. For Shutcastle Inclosure near Ellwood, a cottage on an old encroachment was purchased. The lodge is shown on Sopwiths Map of the Forest of Dean, 1835.
