Ightham Mote

Ightham Mote (pronounced: "item moat"), is an original moated manor house, built sometime in the early 14th-century, making it almost 700 years old.

For family and friends in America: The house is 500 years older than our country. Boggles the mind, doesn't it?

The builder of the house is unknown, but owner records are available from c1360 onwards. The house and gardens are located in Sevenoaks, Kent.

I'll upload a few more pictures later in the week, since it is an amazing building. And yes, there are stained glass windows, which I promise to post!

  2. @Carli, You will love it. It's old and creaky and sooooo English. LOL! Hugs
