COUNTRY PUBS CLOSE THEIR DOORS

VILLAGES around Sevenoaks are in danger of losing their identity as a swathe of traditional pubs close.

In recent months half a dozen pubs have shut. This is in addition to those left empty, unloved or handed over to developers for housing.

The "Crown" in Knockholt has been left idle since January, while the "Rock and Fountain" in Well Hill is also closed.

 

Your help is needed here. If you have any information about the above pub or other pubs in the same village or indeed other photographs of this house, open or closed, please email me at the address below. Every email is answered.

Thanks for your co-operation.
