Things you might find in me...

Numerous dark knights with the Earl of Erroll.

A ham-fisted Napoleon of 1945.

Sometimes converted but often cold.

Plenty of mice and other things live.

What am I?

I'll add more clues if it's a bit too cryptic! :)

EDIT:

It's quite a cryptic one, all words are clues. :)

Is it a...

barn?

The dark knights and Lord of Erroll are

Bats and Hay

A ham-fisted Napoleon is

A reference to Animal Farm, published in 1945.

Sometimes converted, often cold

Barns are sometimes converted to serve other purposes, and are often not very well insulated, which would make them cold in winter (at least in my geographic location)

Plenty of mice and other things live

In barns.

  • $\begingroup$ You got it! Although the dark knights was a reference to Christian Bale as he played Batman in the Dark Knight trilogy. And the reference was Bale as in bales of hay but bats works too! :) $\endgroup$ – Andrew Aug 19 '16 at 7:05
