News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Longpockets. Many thanks, yes that was it, & the link brought it all back. When I was an Apprentice at RAFHalton, a friend, Bill Mercer's dad was the landlord of a pub in Mereworth. The Brewery produced a set of, probably 30? thin metal 2" x 21/2" of pub signs in Kent. Was it Fremlyns? Of course, he had a full set- probably a collectors item now?

It was a very long time ago, but I have a feeling there is one at the park in Kearsney, Dover...  certainly remember a big dome.

You have to squint a bit to see it. There's a better picture shown here:

It says "The Angel Strood" on the picture, so I reckon that's pretty conclusive!

Sorry I did not look at that.

I assumed it was the old Whitbread sign for the Angel in Strood (corner of North Street and High Street)

Sorry I did not look at that.

" I'm intrigued at your Inn Sign. It looks a little like, but not the same as, the one at Malling in the 50's that was of a saint, hands held up & eyes to the sky, with a circle above around which were a couple of Spitfires or? "


Could this be the Inn sign for the The Angel at Addington?

Dave,

I think the pub you are referring to is The Startled Saint.
