The pub and and the Malthouse.
Historic buildings on Upper Street, Hollingbourne in Kent, England. The pub is a beautiful 11th Century building set on The Pilgrims Way, used by pilgrims on their way to Canterbury for centuries. Supposedly King James II stayed at the inn on his way to France via Canterbury and Dover.
Hollingbourne is listed in the Domesday book and is a small village, run by a Parish council, near the North Downs and five miles from Maidstone in South East England. There are over one hundred listed buildings and the village boasts two more pubs!. I spent time there as a child with my Godmother. These images were taken on a recent visit when I returned to see if I could find Little Snagbrook (where she lived). See more scenes from this charming place
