Kingsmoor House - Harlow - May 2011

Recommended Posts

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.

      So this is my first post on this forum, I found out about these houses on a Abandoned Lincolnshire group on Facebook and thought they were definitely worth a trip, but... the first trip wasn't very successful, the address for these houses took us to two houses on the other side of Withcall that were at one point abandoned but have since been knocked down, so after about half an hour of looking around it became very clear the houses weren't there.
       
      After talking to the person who posted them originally and finding out the real location we headed back up to find them. We had to make sure we kept quiet as there is a neighbor attached to the 2nd station house and we weren't sure they'd have appreciated a night time visit from 3 explorers haha. 
       
      Access to the house is easy, the doors being left open is always convenient. Walking around the houses only took 30 minutes or so , but was still a nice little explore. It's one of them places that besides a few repairs and some serious wallpapering, it looks like the family could just walk back through the front door and pick up their lives where they left off which gave the houses a real creepy vibe.
       
      I guess that's all that really needs to be said about these houses. Here's a few pictures:

      An abandoned house along a Belgian road. The house was partly destroyed by a fire and the former owner now resides with family. Some family member comes by occasionaly to feed the stray cats.

      Recently, I´ve visited "Mold House". Of course, more than well-known. When I first set my eyes on pictures of that house with its amazing colours and its state of decay, I instantly fell in love. I´m glad I could fulfill my dream of visiting that place. I especially loved the pink colour of the armchairs being sokaed into the carpet.

      Now, on the way out I bump into a guy who lives on the estate, after chatting about the history of the place his wife pops along and mentions the mausoleum
      Then proceeds to tell me the route to find it in the forrest !
      Not the biggest of finds but certainly wasnt expecting that wwhen I woke up




      cheers
