Researching my family history some years ago I found that my gg grandfather was the publican of the Red Lion and Star in Strood. I also found a book (title unremembered) which lists the old inns of Strood and gives specific mention of the ceiling of the Red Lion and Star which was constructed of 'massive beams of carved oak'(I have a photocopy of the relevant page). It also says 'On the demolition of the building (around 1900) this ceiling was removed to Wateringbury and re-built in the house of Mr. Leney, brewer.'I would love to get a photo of the beams so that I could add it to my history. Is the house still there or does anyone know where I could find a photo?
