DIED. LANGLEY.

May 20, Mr. Richard Kite, of the "Crown and Horse Shoes Inn," Langley, aged 40 years.

 

The pub closed its doors just before the Autumn of 2014, and lay dormant for a few years, even being used as a canabif factory shortly after its closure, however in the Autumn of 2016, it had been renovated and under a new management it opened again, under the new name of the "Potting Shed."

 

From the http://www.kentonline.co.uk By Alan Smith, 25 April 2015.

Langley's Crown and Horseshoes used as a cannabis factory.

Police discovered a cannabis factory when they swooped on a disused pub - on the same road as the force's headquarters.

Officers raided the "Crown and Horseshoes" pub in Langley yesterday following reports of suspicious behaviour.

They returned to the site on the corner of Sutton Road and Horseshoes Lane today to remove plants and equipment from the building.

Four men have been arrested on suspicion of cultivating cannabis. The men, aged 38, 44, 21 and 59 have been bailed until July 8, pending further investigations.

Neighbours reporting seeing bright lights through the windows after the police raid and a strong smell of the drug emanating from the open windows.

Some of the plants are visible through the open window.

The pub closed down about four months ago and the building is currently for sale.
