PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Paul Skelton

Earliest 1837-

Queen's Head

Latest 1891+

 

Horton Kirby

 

Only found one instance of this so far and at the time it was up for auction, so this may well have been the last. However, I do know of a pub called the "Queen" situated within a mile of Horton Kirby but addressed as in South Darenth. It is not known whether they is any connection between the two or indeed if it is the same.
