Notes: This is considered to be the oldest brick house
still standing in Canterbury. It used to be the town house of
an important family - the Man family.
Scoffham discusses it in his book (see bibliography).
He says that in the 18th and 19th centuries the windows were replaced
and the classical doorway installed.
Quiney (p234) describes it nicely
as "laid in English bond [see brickwork
pages] with stone quoins [i.e. corner stones] and Doric entablature"
The building is now a solicitors' office. I am most grateful
to Mark Montague, who looks after the building, for showing me
round. However, responsibility (blame) for these photos is mine
