The "General at Sea" in Chatham is the only pub in the country to bear this name, and refers to Admiral Robert Blake who was appointed to the role by Oliver Cromwell in 1648. Blake was Admiral of the Commonwealth fleet which defeated the Dutch, led by Prince Rupert off Sheppey the following year.

 

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

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.
