Public Houses & Taverns in Darenth

DARENTH, or DARENT, is an ancient village and parish, two miles and three quarters from Dartford, S.E., and seven miles S.W. from Gravesend. The population in 1851 was 624. The church is dedicated to St. Margaret, and is a small ancient building. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Rochester, and incumbency of the Rev. John Eveleigh, M.A. Green Street Green is a village, three miles and a half S.W. from Northfleet, and one mile and a half east from Darenth. In

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 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
