Description
Ightham Mote

Superb 14th-century moated manor house

Nestling in a sunken valley and dating from 1320, the house has features spanning many centuries. The most extensive visitor route open since Ightham Mote's acquisition by the Trust includes the Great Hall, Old Chapel, crypt, Tudor chapel with painted ceiling, drawing room with Jacobean fireplace, frieze and 18th-century wallpaper, billiards room and the apartment of Charles Henry Robinson, the American donor. There is an extensive garden and interesting walks in the surrounding woodland. A comprehensive programme of repair begun in 1989 was completed in 2004 and is the subject of a 'Conservation in Action' exhibition in the visitor reception
