    Red Lion, Newland Street, Witham#

    1977 whilst known as Farthings

    The original Red Lion was in a different location, on what is now 68 Newland Street (above and below). The current premises (bottom) have "only" been so called since around 1800, prior to which it was known as the Black Boy.
