Old Custom House was purpose built for Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise and officially opened in 1982.

Located in the heart of Dovercourt, the offices played a vital role in this maritime town where it also undertook important Customs functions for the whole of the UK. Old Custom House provided accommodation for teams including the Mobile Task Force and administration for all associated freight control functions at nearby Parkeston Quay and Harwich Navyard. The building also contained a strong room which was used to store contraband seized from nearby ports.

Make Old Custom House’s history a part of your future… Old Custom House provides a unique opportunity to own a piece of a wonderful maritime legacy.

'Queen's Warehouse' - Three Bedroom Apartments each with outside garden terrace, allocated parking spaces and finished to a high specification.

‘The Queens Warehouse’ housed a walk-in safe used for the enhanced security of contraband. It was the responsibility of the Queens Warehouse staff to receive, manage and dispose of both ‘detained’ and ‘seized’ goods. Methods of disposal depended upon the type of goods. Alcohol would be poured down the ‘Queen’s pipe’, whilst anything else capable of being burned, would be incinerated.

• Gated entrance and CCTV for privacy and security;
