White Hart 1940

Above photo, circa 1940, kindly sent by Tony Smith. Around about 1904-08 this area of the High street underwent some demolition and rebuilding due to a road improvement scheme, the pub shown here dating from this time. Currently open as a Pizzeria.

Rochester map 1866

Identified on the 1866 map above as the pink building, central. Unfortunately incorrectly labelled.

 

One of the oldest heraldic devices is the White Hart, adopted for his personal use by Richard II, and later by Henry V and Edward IV. This "White Hart" was known in 1390, when Richard was on the throne.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
