Remains of a late 13th-century knight's dwelling in the Kent countryside, including the solar chamber, barrel-vaulted undercroft, chapel and garderobe.
Rare remaining structure of a late 13th-century knight's dwelling, including the solar chamber, barrel-vaulted undercroft, chapel and garderobe.
Dating from 1290, this medieval Knight’s house is a rare survivor from the time of Edward I.
Built by William le Hore, the property was called the ‘Manor of Sore alias Hores’. From 1348 this was the fortified home of the wealthy Colepeper family. What remains are the private rooms of the lord and his family, which were on the first floor. This provided extra security from thieves who roamed the countryside.
