The Red Lion can be seen below on the 1884 OS map. Our map location and photo show what we think was the Lion. As the OS map isn't very clear, this may be wrong. If you can confirm or refute our assumptions or can provide any more information, please get in touch.

pub on old OS map

The pub is shown on the 1958 OS map, but not on the 1981 sheet, so presumably closed some time in between.
