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.

Sue Tapliss at Lacock Abbey winter 1969-70


I remember the Queen’s Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977, the whole
village held its celebrations in the grounds of Lacock Abbey. Sports
events were held on the meadow, there was a sack race and I did the
three-legged race with my father; we didn't win.
