Public Houses in Pembury

Pembury is a village, five miles S.W. from Tunbridge. The church is dedicated to St. Peter, and appears to be of great antiquity; it stands about one mile and a half from the village. The living is a vicarage, in the patronage and incumbency of the
Rev. George Stephen Woodgate, M.A. Here is the Tunbridge Union workhouse; and at the end of the village is a row of neat almshouses for six old persons, the gift of Charles Amherst, Esq., of Bayhall.

If you would like to contribute the amazing new project to map London over the last hundred years and more, please continue to read. What is needed is mainly details of when a London street was renamed, bombed, cleared, or tidied. Pictures are the best way of expressing anything, and a picture tells a thousand words. Also needed is those thousand words, or even fity words. Anything will be brilliant. Please help out before the London skyline is transformed for ever. What is needed, just an email to the Email the London team. We can do the rest; and you also get your name on the site, if this is OK.
