Old Walmer Court
TR 367-504 Kent England
Old Walmer Court is a mid 12th century moated, semi-fortified manor house, possibly founded by William d'Auberville. The roughly square first floor hall house, was flanked on the angles by turrets and on the west side, an external stair led into a forebuilding at first floor level. Both the manor house and the adjacent Blessed Mary of Walmer Church, were originally encased by a wide ditch. The flint rubble walls, of the two undercrofts and a fragmentary upper floor, stand ruined and overgrown, adjoining the graveyard wall. A mile east is Walmer Castle and 7 miles west is Coldred Court.
Old Walmer Court is located in Upper Walmer, off Church Street. 6 miles north-east of Dover, on the A258.
The site is private, with no public access and the view from the church is restricted.
Car parking is by the side of the road.
