One thought on “Ightham Mote”

  1. Hello! I am researching family history, and wonder if you have any images of “Castle Bettred,” a.k.a. Bertrey Manor, which apparently became part of Apuldure/Apperfield Manor. I understand there won’t be photos, but maybe there’s a sketch or painting? Thanks very much for any help you can give me.
