Only information regarding this pub I have so far is from Rory Kehoe who says the "Forrester's Arms," was addressed as Wincheap Grove and was there in 1900. I know very little about this pub, other than it closed shortly before WW1 and was converted into two cottages. This part of Canterbury (end of Castle Street, Wincheap Green) was demolished in the 1950s to make way for the ring road. Meadow Cottages are on the left of the pub.

Further information says it was the last house in the Cul-de-Sac.
