Red Lion, Each End near Ash

Earliest reference found so far is in the Wingham Division Ale Licence list, which shows the "Red Lion," Woodnesborough, to be re-licensed for the sum of 8 shillings in 1740 indicating that the pub was present before 1740.

Michael Mirams has kindly sorted out the confusion here, informing me that Each End is actually in the parish of Woodnesborough.


From the Kentish Gazette, Wednesday, 29 June to Saturday 2 July, 1768. Price 2d
