|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
|1859||1940||WHITE HORSE INN|
|The White Horse has been in use since the fifteenth century and os common because of its widespread use. It was the symbol of the Kings of Wessex and is the traditional emblem of Kent. A galloping white horse refers to the Hanovers and dates from the accession of George I in 1714. It is also used by several guilds, such as the Carmen, Coachmen, Farriers, Saddlers and Wheelwrights.
These premises had a public house license from c1849. In 1859 this pub was previously referred to as the WEAVERS ARMS. It had a home brewery until c1925 and closed in November 1940, no doubt a victim of the blitz.|
