Castle, a sizeable late 17th century hipped-roofed house, inflated
into a "castle" in the early 19th century. This was done c. 1805, by
the architect William Atkinson. (Works of c. 1836-8 by Kendall did
not affect the exterior.) Symmetrical north front, three storeyed.
Windows with hood moulds. Chiddingstone Castle is one of the very few examples of the castellated revival in Kent. Inside, 16th century panelling survives in a room in the south east corner, and 16th century heraldic glass in the hall and on the staircase. (4)
