Old Photos of Witham

Red Lion (7 Newland Street) and 9-13 Newland Street

Taken: 10 July 1914, Ref: M698

From the survey of 1914 by the Royal Commission on Historic Monuments.

Left to right, part of Red Lion public house (7 Newland Street, with ‘Chambers and Teas’ advert), 9 Newland Street (A. Rowe), 11 Newland Street (no names), 13 Newland Street (J. G. Green). Numbers 9-13 were described by the RCHM in 1914 as ‘House now 3 shops’.

The original RCHM Record Card for these buildings from 1914, contains rather more about their structure and history. I think they were Witham Monuments 26 and 37. I think the cards may now be held by Historic England in Swindon.
