Henry V at The Red Lion, Sittingbourne

in November, 1415, King Henry V was entertained at the Lion Inn in the High Street on his return from the battle of Agincourt by Squire Northwode, of Milton. It is believed that he dined in the hall there, and his retinue were accommodated.

Seven years later his body was taken through Sittingbourne on its route from France to Westminster Abbey.
