Littlebury Farmhouse, Romford Road, Stanford Rivers - Epping Forest

Timber-framed house of c1540 and earlier. A lean-to roof is not watertight and is in poor condition. The timber frame is protected by ply sheeting. The building remains unoccupied and although gutters have been cleared and vegetation cut back its condition continues to deteriorate. Discussions with owner and local planning authority are on-going.
