Welcome To The Walnut Tree, Aldington
THE historic “Walnut Tree” pub in the village of Aldington was built during the reign of Richard II.
It started as no more than a timber-framed wattle-and-daub hut with a thatched roof, but in the mid-15th century a small bedroom was added at a higher level – it was reached by ladder.
But during the Napoleonic wars with France the village was the stronghold of the Aldington Gang – an infamous band of smugglers who roamed the marshes and shoreline.
