"Ye Olde Red Lion Hotel" Much Hadham Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld
Much Hadham Things to Do: 6 reviews and 16 photos
The Red Lion coaching inn, now converted into private houses, has existed in the village since the fifteenth century. It was a stopping point on the old road from London to Cambridge. Legend has it that a tunnel connected the pub to St. Andrew's, possibly built during the time of Oliver Cromwell to serve as an escape route for the clergy. The skeleton of an eighteen-year-old woman was discovered bricked up into a fireplace in the inn. It is thought she died after being incarcerated, sometime during the nineteenth century. My Aunt and Uncle used to live here and my mum often felt a ghostly presence!
