Canterbury

 

I am hoping that this "Military Tavern" isn't getting confused with another "Military Tavern" listed in King Street, the streets being quite a distance apart. Walter Wood was mentioned here in 1882, if the information is correct as there was a John Wood definitely at the other premises from 1889 to at least 1891. I do not know the relationship between the two if any.

The Greens Canterbury Directory of 1868 referred to this as the "New Military Tavern" so it may have been a new build around that date.

Further information says it was situated a few doors from Notley Street.
