Just to the right of the King's Arms, at the corner of Market Lane is a small cottage which may be the oldest timberframed house in Elham. It is now completely plastered over, and newer windows added, but it once had a jetty, or overhang at the end facing the Square, and it was similar in style to the famous old cottage at Frogholt, near Folkestone. As with the stucco outside, wallpaper hides most of the timbers inside, but enough may still be seen to leave no doubt that this was a small hall house of the 14th or 15th century. Elham Study
