    Arrow Overstone House, Market Harborough - June 2014


    Can't find much out about this one, a large and very dated house in its own extensive grounds with tennis courts and swimming pool. It has offices over the garages which strangely appear to have once been occupied by a travel company. The site is due to be cleared soon for the construction of 50 houses. Visited with jacquesj.

    How true - the demolition and planning saga makes iterating reading also.
