Kingsmoor House is a Grade II* listed 18th century coach house with 19th century additions

In 2006 planning permission was granted to convert the building into 9 apartments, but this has never happened and now the place is slowly decaying

Taken from "The History of Harlow (H.D.C. 1969)
It was at this time, about the middle of the 18th century, that a new property at Parndon came into prominence. Kingsmoor House was never a manor and it's origin is obscure,
but by the 18th century it had become a considerable residence with well disposed grounds, standing on a light elevation above the common.
Here was the home of the Risden family, and of a branch of the Houblon family. It was later purchased by Mr Todhunter who is commemorated in the stained glass windows in St Mary's Church (Gt Parndon).
Later it was used as a private school.

Nah, this was a solo. It's normally locked up like a bank vault, but I got the heads up that it was open and I was down there like a ferret, it had to be done quick as I know that its sec checked at least daily.
I passed on the info to SK and I believe that he went in tonight ;)

Another gorgeous building allowed to rot, whether through greed or red tape.

I'm going to have to stop visiting DP. It's giving me ulcers.

Localy known as a haunted house Mmmmmm
Have to say didnt see so much as an orb .
But I struggled to capture the way the failing sun shone through the mesh screen covering the windows
and quickly found myself with a mesh fetish :)

Was nice to poke my head back in and see how the building was shaping up.
Land pirates have hit it hard :(
As i was leaving i could here a cordless working on the mesh further down and was soon to see three getting busted lol
Such is life.
