Title: Pubs in Rainham, Wigmore & Upchurch Area - Am I missing Any?
Post by: Leofwine on May 10, 2011, 22:00:34
Having been working my way through various Gillingham & Twydall Pubs, I've decided to extend my list out to the Rainham/Wigmore/Upchurch area. I'm wracking my brains to remember all the pubs over that side and I think I have all (or at least most) of them.   Can anyone tell me any I've missed?  

I'm also trying to recall which ones are still there. The ones I'm fairly certain about are in italics, but if I think the building is still there, but the pub is now closed I've added a ** after the name.

Cherry Orchard        Deanwood Drive**
Hungry Fox        Hempstead Valley

Concorde     120 Wakely Road
Honourable Pilot      Will Adams Way
Army & Navy   Lower Rainham Road**

May have read your intro incorrectly but The Crown and the Brown Jug, Upchurch, unless you have listed former names I was unaware of.

The only two survivers in Upchurch I believe. There was also Edward First Tavern in 1901 next to the rectory (handy?). I don't know if this was a rename of one of Leofwine's although Edward seventh was on the throne then.

Thanks. I was thinking there were more in Upchurch, but my mind had gone blank!  And I'd not heard of the Edward First at all.

I had those two on the Gillingham list, but the boundaries around there are hazy.

Not sure if this thread is still viable but I believe there was a pub called the Black Horse in Upchurch, opposite the recreation ground.

Should that be the Sun in the Wood, Lower Halstow, Grandarog?  Its a private house/art studio IIRC.  Or was there another one?

Dave The Train, I think, if I remember correctly, Breach Lane and Breach itself used to be Upchurch before borders were redrawn.

There is a nice photograph for sale on ebay at the moment of the Edward 1 pub, Upchurch that I have not seen.   

I will post a link rather than breaking any copyright rules, in case a member would like to buy it.

Nobody has mentioned The Dewdrop in Twydall?

Used to use that in the mid 60's.
