Stained Glass and Grade1-Listed Dog House

Ightham Mote is the most complete medieval manor house in England, and it at has the only Grade I Listed Dog house.

As promised, here is the stained glass window.

Because of the fragility and age of Ightham Mote, it is the biggest conservation project ever undertaken by The National Trust. Well worth the effort. If you ever get the chance to see it in person, you won't be disappointed.



  1. Thank you Deb! It's beautiful. I do hope to see them in person one day, along with a whole bunch of others scattered around Europe. I have only 4 more years until Heather graduates, and then I will hopefully have more time and the ability to travel and see a little more of the world.

  2. That dog house is fantastic! I wouldn't be surprised if it's heated. Lol. ;-)

  3. @Susanne: The dog house is huge. A whole dog pack could live in it comfortably.

    I thought the window was especially cool. The patterns are not what you would normally expect. I'll post some of the stained glass from Dover Castle one of these days. And there are some awesome ones at the Parish Church in Faversham.

    Here's a link to their "official" photos:

    You really need to come over and see them. Maybe you and Heather could come over for a graduation celebration!


  4. If you have trouble with that link, let me know and I'll it. :)

  5. I cannot wait to travel more someday to see more sights like this up close.

  6. @Wendy: Nothing beats 'up close' -- pictures are nice, but they can't catch all the details, smells, colours, textures. I make it a point to touch the stone, especially if the flint has been knapped. Hope you get to England. You will love it!

  7. Great post!. A comprehensive roundup of all the good sources I already knew of and few I didn't. Thanks for a useful information it helps a lot.
