Earliest 1832-

Bell

Latest ????

Old Road

Crayford

 

In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.)

 

Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Tuesday 7 October 1890.

On the application of Mr. Bailey, the license of the "Bell Inn," Crayford, was transferred from William Mugford to Percy Alfred Mugford.

 

Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.
