129 Brook Street

Chatham

Three Cups

Above photo June 1907, also showing the "Rob Roy" on its right.

 

The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the premises held a Full License and was owned by Edward Winch of Chatham.

Described as probably the most notorious thoroughfare, containing many low pubs and brothels. The "Rob Roy" and "Three Cups" were situated on either side of Queen Street. being at the foot of the Great Lines and the lowest point of Chatham, the Brook was often prone to flooding as can be seen in the photo of June 1907.

 

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.
