Similar view from Google, January 2009. Although the church tower looks deceivingly further away. Think it's the angle.

The Victory.

The Victory was demolished when the Snodland bypass was built in the early 1980s, but the first records of this High Street pub are from 1866.

In 1979 the building ceased to have residents because it was awaiting demolition, but it stood close to the "Red Lion" in its lifetime.
