William Cobbett wrote in 1823:- "Deal is a most villanous place. It is full of filthy looking people. Great desolation of abomination has been going on here; tremendous barracks, partly pulled down and partly tumbling down, and partly occupied by soldiers. Every thing seems upon the perish. I was glad to hurry along through it, and leave it's inns and public houses to be occupied by the tarred, and town served, and blue-and-buff crew whose very vicinage I always detest.


As late as 1847, the town still boasted three breweries
