Red Lion

Date of photo: c.1905

Picture source: Geoff Wilkinson

The Red Lion was situated on the High Street. This was a group of three early 17th century cottages that were incorporated into one larger ale house. Whitewashed, as they all were, this building had a thatched roof which was cut eyebrow fashion over the upper windows. It closed in 1857 and the building reverted back to cottages. They remained in use as lodging houses until 1904 when they were rebuilt into two larger cottages. These too were demolished in 1958 to make way for the Post Office building in the photo below.
