Old Crook Log, Crook Log, Bexley Heath

This pub was probably established by 1738 and is mentioned in Charles Dickensí 1859 novel ĎA Tale of Two Citiesí.
In 1822 it was renamed the Fox & Hounds, although the name Crook Log seems also still to have been in use and the name formerly reverted by around 1898. Earlier addresses, e.g. in 1891 were at Main Road, Bexley Heath **
