Built in 1593 around a central chimney core, it was already called The Red Lion by 1632. It used to have extensive stabling and carriage business, and it housed the local fire engine until about 1904.

The Posting House. 18th century exterior with a late medieval core. It has an early 16th century inscription on the fireplace lintel. The house is visible in Schellinks' 1661 drawing of the High Street. Canterbury Cathedral archives record a brawl here involving Christopher Applegate, a Marlowe contemporary.

The Higham Park estate can be traced back to 1320 when it was ceded to the 'De Hegham' family by Edward II. The current building is a large neoclassical mansion, once the home of eccentric racing driver Count Louis Zborowski. His giant-engined "Chitty Bang Bang" cars were built there, as was Babs, the vehicle used in J.G. Parry-Thomas's attempt at the land speed record at Pendine Sands in 1927. Annoyingly, when I tried to take a photo of the place a few years ago, the owner ran out of the house and told me to go away. Nice people! Clearly there was no one home today :)
