Latest 1828

High Street

Canterbury

Above painting by Thomas Sidney Cooper, shows the "Coach and Horses" in the High Street in 1827.

 

I do not know how old this pub is and obviously predates the painting of 1827, but in 1828 the pub was demolished to make way for the Regency Church. The yellow-brick building was closed in 1902 when the parish amalgamated with that of St. Alphage, but the building was used as a hall till about 1935 when that was also demolished. The premises is now the site of the Canterbury library.

I am assuming that this was a pub, but further research has listed the building as Coach and Waggon Offices.
