12 Watts Place

Chatham

 

The Licensing Directory of 1872 says this was called the "Forester's Restaurant," operating under a beer license and was owned by Benjamin Gilbert of Burnt Oak Terrace in Gillingham.

In the 1882 and 1891 directories the address is given as being Medway Street.

 

This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

As such I haven't found a picture of the pub, and have no other information. Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
