Temple Manor, Strood, Kent
Temple Manor, Strood, Kent
Tucked away in an industrial estate in Strood is this medieval survivor. It was built by the Knights Templars who had assembled a range of buildings in Strood by 1185, which included a timber hall, barns, kitchens and stables. The stone building, which has survived to the present day, was added around 1240. It consists of a vaulted undercroft supporting a large, undivided first-floor hall, approached by an external staircase. This was probably a part of the range of facilities designed for the accommodation of travelling Templar dignitaries. Over the years this hall was altered and enlarged as it passed through the hands of a number of owners. Many additions have been lost but two fine, 17th century brick extensions can still be seen today. (Information from Medway Council website)
