As you travel up Spital Hill, you pass the old 'Lodge Inn' building on the left hand side of the road. At one time it became a motorcycle shop. Although it is almost derelict now, you can still see some of the fine old wooden arches above the windows and imagine the building in its former glory.

Just after the doorway leading up to the offices of Mama East Africa Women's Group, there is an archway with floral rosettes carved in stone above it. Immediately to the left of this, on an angled slab, is an old painted advert for car parts This was once covered in plaster but is now being slowly revealed.
