    Public Houses in Penshurst

    PENSHURST is a neat village and parish, near a station of the South-Eastern railway, six miles and a half N.W. of Tunbridge Wells, and five miles and a half S.W. from Tunbridge. The population in 1851 was 1,628. The church of St. John the Baptist is a well built structure. The living is a rectory, in the patronage of Lord de L'Isle and Dudley, and incumbency of the Rev. William Green, M.A.; the Rev. G. M. Smith, M.A., curate. A small neat chapel of ease was built in 1847, in the early English style of architecture, at Fordcoombe Green, a small hamlet, about two miles from the village; the Rev. William Trevenen, M.A., is the curate.
