Ightham Moat

Hi folks,

today we went out for some supplies and ended up at this pleasant National Trust House near Sevenoaks Kent.

Built in 1320 and there are 70 rooms in the house and it is surrounded on all four sides buy a moat.

One of the three bridges crossing the moat.

The National Trust took it over in 1965 and it was restored in 2004

Walled gardens are a sight to see.

I love this time of year when the Daffodils fight with the weather to survive, this year I hope they win.

Interesting gardens surround the house with a variety of trees and flowers.

Lots of interesting facts on the building can be found on the web, a few more images to follow and well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Thanks for looking.

Luv, Mike


  1. A lovely wander around the grounds of Igtham Moat.It's good to know that this historical building and grounds are cared for by the National Trust, for us all to enjoy. The gardens are beautiful this time of year with the beautiful daffodils, and trees in bud. Mrs Egg.
