Sydenham was located in Kent until 1889 when the County of London was formed and in 1965 it became part of the current London Borough. It is now a suburban district of South London in the London Boroughs of Lewisham, Bromley and Southwark.

Your help is appreciated, and every email is answered.

 

The original premises was erected in 1733 but was rebuilt in 1937. At one time, it changed name to the "Ferret and Trouser Leg" but I have no idea how long it operated with that ridiculous name.
