Earliest 1838-

King's Head Tap

Latest 1838+

(Name to)

Lamb Lane

Canterbury

 

Only reference to this so far is from Stapleton's Guide of 1838. Obviously the tap to one of the King's Head hotels, but not knowing the location of Lamb Lane yet I do not know which one.

Further information tells me that Lambs Lane ran from the High Street to Jewry Lane, so this would have been the Tap to the "King's Head" in the High Street.

It has been suggested that the "Kings Head Tap" changed to "Prince Albert Inn" in honour of Queen Victoria's marriage to Prince Albert on 10 February 1840. The name change would have been after this date.

Local knowledge required here please.
