Manor House, Suttons Road, South Shoebury - Southend-on-Sea (UA)

House, 1681. Currently vacant, last used as residential quarters. Re-use of the building is complicated by its location within a military site. A serious dry rot problem was treated 1998 to 2003 but has caused considerable damage to the interior. The building has been vacant for many years. Rigid application of three-year break clause in all long leases granted by Ministry of Defence has seriously worsened potential for reuse by charitable trusts. On-going water ingress due to defective rainwater goods.
