A view of Pimp Hall, dovecote and barn from the 19th century.

The hall was rebuilt in 1572 and remained a farm until the late 1920s.

The farm held many secrets including evidence of a secret tunnel that led to Friday Hill House cellars.

The hall was demolished in the late 1930s.

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

All that remains today is the Grade II listed dovecote and remnants of the tree-lined avenue that now leads to the recycling centre.
