The Red Lion

on Monday, 01 February 2010. Posted in Work, Leisure

We take time out to look at what was the start...

The Red Lion

From the architecture we know that the Red Lion was built c1730. The earliest record we have for the Red Lion is a lease dated 1739, when a Henry Fripp occupied the property. The property is clearly marked on the 1764 map of the Lacock estate with its accompanying survey.
