Map showing the second Handcross Park

The map shows the second Handcross Park situated quite a distance from the first. The first one, Handcross House, was pulled down, but, as some sort of memorial, a corner of the building was left standing opposite the school until the dual carriageway was built. The strange-looking pillar is shown on the map and clearly shows that the first house was about the same distance from the road as the school is today.

It seems unlikely that any photograph of Handcross House exists, nor even of the corner of the house which was left standing for many years.
However, I have now found a line drawing of the house and it is easy to imagine what one of the tower-like corners looked like after the remainder was demolished.
