The Red Lion Inn

Christie & Co

By Frank Evans

Can anyone help with the location of this Public House please? It’s  THE RED LION INN. It was owned by CHRISTIE & Co (of Hoddesdon). It has signs for the ‘CTC’ (Cycling Touring Club?). The pub offered ‘Good Accommodation for Cyclists & Pleasure Parties & Good Stabling’. This is on the sign running above the door. No licensee’s name or any other clues. I’m guessing it’s Herts but suppose it could be an adjacent county. Thanks in advance!

  • It also could be a pub owned by my ancestor Thomas Child in Wheathamspead in 1700.

  • This is certainly the Red Lion in Codicote, now a private house on the Green called the Noggins. It was owned by John Crabb, a brewer in Hitchin, by the late 18th century & was then sold to the Hoddesdon Brewery, then belonging to the Whittingstall family & later bought by Christie’s. After a few years under the ownership of the Cannon Brewery from London, when they took Christie’s over in 1927, it spent 30 years in Taylor Walker’s colours & then closed just after becoming an Ind Coope pub, around 1960.

  • I think that’s Codicote.
