Thumbs up FH Manor - Maidstone May 2012

After doing Lillesden and Babies on the drive home, I managed to persuade DMG15 to head back to this place.
This was DMG15 second visit, he come across a few rooms and bits he had never seen before.

The history on this place is hard to find, during the war this was taken over by the RAF and then diss-used.
It was then rebuilt with modern materials, steal beams are all over the house keeping the building up, its disguised with oak cladding, which is now shown due to the structure breaking.
The flat roof and upper floor is all concrete, which is putting a strain on the house which can be noticed.
Its a mixture of all different materials and designs, but as you walk around the house you soon notice things...
The house was once cut into two houses, with the obvious signs of an extension, the motto remains which I was pleased to see, also mother nature is claiming this house.
The house belongs to a farmer around the area who intends to put the manor back to its original condition, which...would be more than the house is worth.

On with the pictures
