I’ve been sent some great photos courtesy of the Faversham Society
The Red Lion at Hernhill in days gone by
The Dove at Dargate c-1910
Interesting to see the pub with its original render.
Yes, doesn’t the Red Lion look different without the exterior we know!
Incredible isn’t it. Richard Percival who is a very good local historian sent them to me. I’m hoping he may write something for the site too.
Good to see the Hernhill Web site. Am attempting to trace the Curlings of Hernhill, so if anyone can help it would be appreciated. Especially George and Elizabeth Curling around 1700. For some history of the Blean area, including Henhill and surrounding villages try Microhistories:-Demography,society, and culture in rural England, 1800-1930. by Barry Reay.
I did come across it on the Web, open acess. Probably better to borrow from the library, as some is a bit heavy with statistics.
