Horse & Groom, Southend Road, Eastwood

Now in Rochford

Horse & Groom, Southend Road, Eastwood

18th July 1999

Taken by Stephen Parker

The Horse & Groom once stood on the edge of the brook, beside the three arched Salt Bridge built in 1772. The bridge led from Rochford into Eastwood. The Horse & Groom, being on the other side of the bridge, was in the parish of Eastwood. Nevertheless, it played an important part in the life of Rochford. It was at the Horse & Groom that the bailiff of the Manor of Rochford Hall collected the rents from Eastwood parish. After the tithes had been collected, a grand meal of pigeon pie was enjoyed. The pigeons had been acquired by the old shepherd from the huge dovecote at the Hall and carried to the inn hidden in the pockets of his greatcoat.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1840 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
