The Star Inn, The Street

If you go up the lane by the side of the Stores you come to "The Star Inn". I have no records of its history, but in 1954 when the path outside was relaid a token was dug up with the following inscriptions- The R. Hon W. Pitt Lord Warden Cinque Ports"* And on the reverse side "Cinque Ports Token payable at Dover-1794" on the rim "Horns Library". It may have been dropped at any time and also it may indicate that there was an inn here frequented by seamen in the eighteenth century. Follow the path for a few paces in a westward direction and then turn sharp right and it will take you along a pathway between two walls to an entrance of a large garden and cottage - now occupied by William Elliott - postman, like his father.
