Up to and including 1906 the address was at 210, but after that date I assume the street was renumbered and the address became 316.

Some time in the early 1980s the pub changed name to the "Fox and Firkin."

 

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.
