The village of Bridge is situated in the Nailbourne valley in a rural setting on the old Roman road, Watling Street, formerly the main road between London and Dover. The village lies about 4 km south-east of Canterbury. I lived there for 5 years.

18th century Coach House.
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 pub has an 18th century exterior with late medieval core. There's an early 16th century inscription on the fireplace lintel. The house is visible in Schellinks' 1661 drawing of Bridge High Street.
