Thanks everyone :)

I'm not sure what the stance is with advertising on the site, so I'll wait for guidance before I post details of how to purchase the book.

That's the pub. I remember the catslide roof which can't be seen in the old photograph. The reason it stood out in my memory was that I couldn't work out which part of the building was the older  The range parallel to the road or the range with the catslide roof? (I was only 18 at the time and my father was happy for me to drive him from pub to pub to give me experience of driving a car before I took my test (I already had a motorbike license).

From the same book I used the picture from earlier in the thread.

"Dunks Green is but a step from Plaxtol, and the Kentish Rifleman, in the guise of an elderly and rather weary Home Guard, contemplates from his sign a typically and therefore lovely scene. The inn is remarkable for many good things, but for none more than the spring which actually flows through the cellar. The Kentish Rifleman, despite its topical sign, is ancient. The bar is crossed by a heavy oak beam over the counter, and in its dim recesses can be seen shining glasses of curious make, polished copper and pewter mugs with some choice horse-brasses and powder horns for good measure . Many are the features of this old house, including doorways made only four feet high, a Tudor inglenook in the parlour, and as one departs with a last lingering look of regret, how fitting is the long bench outside the inn, worn smooth by innumerable pairs of corduroys sitting over countless pints of good ale." (G M Rainbird 1948).

It is the Kentish Rifleman circa. 1552

I have now got a hangover as I have been searching all pubs around there for about 2hrs....lol

Two pictures one better than the other.

I think it`s the Kentish Rifleman, Dunks Green.

It has been many years since I've been out drinking in that area so I am working from memory. But as I recall, it was a Whitbread house so it would fit in the collection.

Fantastic a new "Guess the Place" type topic. Not sure I can be much help but I will try.

Does anyone know if F Leney had anything to do with the Merry Boys pub in East Peckham, now in Pound Road but formerly in Snoll Hatch Road?

I have been trying to trace the history of this pub, sometimes called the Three Merry Boys.

There's a clue on this one - the signpost mentions Hadlow & Tonbridge (not sure of the middle name?)

Once again, any help is greatly appreciated :)

That's brilliant, thanks Davpott  :)

Perhaps your book will show some of the others I have?

I'll post another soon.
