Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just started to map out the pubs that exist or existed in Woolwich, but need local knowledge and photographs, old and current if you have any.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

This page will be updated as soon as further information is found.


Kentish Chronicle, 6 October, 1829.

On Tuesday night, a melancholy circumstance occurred at the "Hampshire Hog" public house in Woolwich, attended with a loss of life. A person of gentlemanly appearance went into the house in the early part of the day, and continue drinking till the evening, when the landlord observed that he was much affected with what he had taken put him to bed, and then proceeded in his business.

After closing the house, at the desire of his wife the landlord went into the lodger's room; he found the bed empty, and on looking round he discovered the gentleman in one corner quite dead, the body doubled up with the head bent under it.

Mr. Dakin, a surgeon, was immediately sent for, but his exertions were unavailing, as it appeared he had been dead at least half an hour.

Search was afterwards made in the trunks of the deceased, when several papers were found, by which he was identified as the Rev. John Campbell, who some years since held curacy of Wyton, in the county of York.
