Sir Thomas Wyatt, Allington
Sir Thomas Wyatt, Allington
A family pub/restaurant on the A20 at the western side of Allington. Named for a local rebel who was born at nearby Allington Castle in 1521, the son of Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder. He led the Wyatt Rebellion, an unsuccessful uprising in support of Elizabeth's claim on the English throne and against Queen Mary who planned to marry the Catholic King Philip II of Spain. Wyatt raised 4000 men in Maidstone and marched on London but they were swiftly defeated and Wyatt was imprisoned in the Tower of London and later beheaded.
