Challock Manor
Challock Manor
The only residence within 1 kilometre of TR0149 : Ss Cosmas and Damian, Challock, set in this peaceful valley Link . It is marked on the map as Challock Manor yet is listed by English Heritage as Church Cottages LinkExternal link and described as a former farmhouse.
The owner has contacted me with the following information: "It is a late 15th century hall house and was not a manor house. It would probably have been a wealthy farmer's home originally, but by the 19th century had been divided into two cottages. In the 19th century, brick walls, new windows and a new roof were put around the mediaeval structure. The original fabric survives within the newer, as our current restoration works are showing.
