Red Lion



The Red Lion was situated on London Road. This pub was the scene of a double murder in 1748. This event is remembered because it brought about a famous trial in Chichester, commemorated by the Smugglers Stone there, and the downfall of a large number of smuggling mobsters who had previously been untouchable. Now in residential use.
