It is suggested that 26 King Street was once the "Green Posts". However the 1911 census gives the address as 16, but I believe the street has either been renumbered or the number 26 is incorrect.

As of 2020 the numbering of this street seems to be quite strange. The Pilgrims Hospice seems to be numbered 16A and to the left of that is the Haven tea room at 20 and 20A. To the right of the Pilgrims Hospice is a shop that unfortunately Google maps doesn't show. Local knowledge and a photo required here please.
