Photograph (Negative)


The photographer's notes state: 'The above beam turned over to show its underside. The long mortise is where the arch of the doorway fitted in. The short mortises, one on either side, show where the west pier (Nos 860 & 861) and the east pier of the entrance fitted in'. [Nos 860 and 861 refers to BB71/09210 and BB71/09211]

There is an additional note stating: 'Photographs taken at Scadbury Park, Chislehurst'.

The farmhouse at Manor Farm was located on the east side of the Orpington Bypass (now Cray Avenue), just to the south of the railway line. It was demolished between January and February 1936.
