About this property

  • Lollards is a beautiful Grade II listed timber-framed building of historical significance. The property features a jettied section in part to the south and west aspects and is featured in a Royal Commission report on the Medieval Houses in Kent, stating the house has 15th century origins with an 18th century extension, although some records suggest an earlier date.

    The house is named after a group named the Lollards who were followers of the teachings of John Wycliff (c1320-84). They believed that everybody should have access to the words of the Bible and therefore be able to interpret the meaning for themselves. They felt that the clergy of the Catholic Church had too much control over the translation and rituals of Christianity and therefore over the general populace. They favoured a simplified religion and denied the transubstantiation as superstitious practice. (abridged from House Historians publication, Jane Davidson, 2001).

    Oak flooring features to much of the ground floor and the property is presented in generally good condition although could benefit from further updating.
