‪Steeped in history, religion, intrigue, mystery and beautiful architecture - Temple Manor is a beautiful example of a building from roughly 1240 attributed to the Knights Templar. Well worth the visit - in fact a must visit if you love history, British history, religion and of course architecture. Well done English Heritage and the Medway Council for saving and presenting this very important piece of Kent history. The building is simply stunning and fascinating an absolute delight to see - once found! It is located in the bowels of a grimy industrial estate but that seems only to elevated its status as a sanctuary and oasis of calm. I chose the perfect day to visit. Late morning with bright sunshine peaking though bits of overcast - added too to the experience. The light as it broke through glazed over the brickwork and the earlier magnificent stone walls. I was the only one on the site and had it all to myself apart from the lovely woman who was its carer for the day. She was welcoming and engaging and I roamed and contemplated while I wandered around. I loved my visit - perhaps even more as I achieved finding it after arriving at the Strood train station. Many thanks to the very kind woman who did steer me in the correct direction and was ever so kind.
So is it worth the mission to find it - as they say on Britain's Got Talent - "it is a big fat YES from me"!‬

‪This is a gem of a place if you are into your history, hidden away half way along the road sandwiched between industrial buildings.

This is an English Heritage Property, run in conjunction with Medway Council, and is open normally on weekends only, but check site, it has limited on site parking and is free entry, although there is a voluntary donation box.

As the name of the manor house suggests, this is heavily associated with Knights Templars. The house is not large but has four or 5 large unfurnished rooms, and numerous boards are displayed giving you plenty of information.

The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We were there for about an hour and in that time there were only 2 other people that turned up.

Well worth a visit, and this can easily be incorporated with a visit to Rochester Castle a mere 10 minutes drive from here.‬

‪This is a strange place in the middle of an industrial estate. Limited parking. The house is unfurnished but absolutely fascinating. There are plenty of signs explaining and some very nice childrens' activities. An oasis of calm in a busy, noisy area. Cannot recommend it enough‬

‪a real must only open during the summer at weekends. free but can leave a donation. this is where the Knights templers stayed during holy wars. about twelfth century has had an addition in 17 century. surrounded by an industrial estate it's a real little gem.as you look at it from the road it's somehow surreal. you can park in the grounds‬

‪We visited Temple Manor in Stood on a Sunday morning having been meaning to come here for a while. I knew a little about the building from a meeting at the Rochester Guildhall the previous year but was not even sure of its location.
After some investigations we found that the site is owned by English Heritage and is run on their behalf by Medway council. It was not clear (to us) if there was any parking available for the site, however on turning up there is limited free parking here.
Temple Manor is located in Strood in Knights Road and is fairly easy to get to by car, note that it is located in an industrial estate and looks a little out of place in this industrial landscape. That said, once in the site, the trees and the bushes hide most of the surroundings and from the inside it is surprisingly secluded and tranquil.
On the morning of our visit, there were two other visitors and during our visit there was a few families turned up as well. We were welcomed to the building by a lady who seemed quite friendly and willing to help with any queries, we thought that she was an excellent ambassador for the manor. There did not seem to be any entrance fee although a voluntary donation box was prominent.
The manor house is not large, and the four rooms are effectively unfurnished, however we were supplied with a small tablet device which gave a virtual tour of each room highlighting items of interest and also an interactive description of the Manor, its history and association with the order of the Knights Templar.
In the oldest part of the building there is a downstairs ‘cellar’ room with an impressive example of a vaulted brick roof comparable to the examples we have seen at Battle Abbey and also in a pub restaurant in Rochester High Street. Above this room is a chamber with arched alcoves and a hard floor supported on the vaulted roof below, there is also a central fireplace which is a later addition. At one end was a collection of clothes allowing children to dress up as a Knight Templar monk which we thought was a nice idea.
An interesting Sunday morning visit, worth a visit if you have an interest in historical buildings, the order of the Knights Templar or even just curious. The visit need not take too long and indeed the length of your visit will probably be proportional to your reason for going. We found access was easier than we initially thought and the time we spent investigating prior to our visit was well spent.‬

‪My grandparents used to live in Temple Street, Strood. The road was demolished to make way for a large shop. My nan often used to mention Temple Manor and tell me I should look at it. 50+ years later I have. It is an oasis of calm amidst the current industrial park activity. It is open at weekends. Fascinating place to look around for 30 minutes or so. Free to enter, but there is a box for donations. There is a lady to ask for any information required. So glad to have finally been. I hope that it is looked after and cherished for future generations to enjoy. X

‪This place is a small house that is set in the middle of an industrial estate. This building is to do with the knights Templar and that they stayed there. Has some interesting facts. ‬

‪Visited the manor by off chance, a great place to visit and you can walk around, a nicely preserved little piece of history surrounded unfortunately by industrial units/businesses.

Defiantly worth a visit to learn more about the local history and the Knights Templar ‬

‪Very badly signposted for such an interesting building. It is in the development stage so should be really super in a year or so. Nevertheless there were enough 'info. cards' to explain each area.‬
