Old Soar Manor

Old Soar Manor is an English Heritage property, owned and maintained by the National Trust. Located near Plaxtol, Kent, England, it is a small 13th century stone manor house. It is Grade I listed building, in its district.[1]

Built in 1290, the manor originally belonged to the Culpepper family. The centre of the house was originally the great hall but this no longer exists, as it was demolished in 1780 and replaced with the red-brick farmhouse on the site.[2] Visitors today can see the solar, latrine and chapel which remain.[3]
