    Nestled in the sweeping hills of Kent you will find what was at one point a grand manor house. Information on this is very thin on the ground but did find out that during the war this was taken over by the RAF and shortly burnt out. It was subsequently rebuilt with modern materials which can plainly be seen throughout the house. Steel beams weave their way through rooms and floors locking the building together then disguised with oak cladding. The new flat roof and new upper floor was cast in concrete adding a huge weight to the building which has now subsided over the years. Why they would need a concrete roof on a manor house is beyond me. Later additions make this a very confusing mesh of styles and materials creating a very if unsightly curious manor house. Most of the original features have gone but there are gems to be found if you look hard, a cast iron cooker/arger buried under removed oak cladding, oak staircase, stained glass window and textured wallpaper. The current owner, a farmer and his family are seeking compensation to have the concrete removed and the building underpinned and then refurbished. To see a manor house restored to its former glory would be a great sight but we have all seen what happened to potters manor and this isnt far from it now.


    The explore was relaxed and enjoyable with no hiccups and made for a nice lazy sunday wander. I was joined by new member jamin and his wifey. These are just a few unedited photos taken with a 60 quid point and shoot so i do apologize but its getting out and doing it that counts.
