History

Neglected building that has been part of the Wilson & Kyle offices.

18th Century brick house, re-fronted in boldly detailed stucco in the 19th Century, and is possibly earlier, since the double-depth roof form could easily date from the late 17th Century

In the 1920s it was the London Radio College set up to train radio operators for the merchant navy. The college moved to Chiswick in the 1930s.

2012 – report that it is in a very bad state and unsafe and likely to be demolished with part of Wilson & Kyle for widening the junction at the Half Acre.

Paul Kyle apparently said the place was “haunted”

Danger

September 2013: Under threat of demolition.
