sub-titled - A History of the Pubs and Breweries of Romney Marsh.
This is a comprehensive history of the brewing and drinking trade in this rather remote part of Kent.
The main brewery in the Romney Marsh was at Hythe - Mackeson and in Rye Finn was brewing until 1920.
The book groups the pubs into - Coastal Villages, Marsh Villages and the towns of Hythe, Rye, Lydd and New Romney and the Marsh Borders. Within each group all the known pubs are described historically and most have photos past and present.
Pertinent effects on the pubs in the Marsh are holiday trade, smuggling(in the past), railways and military.
The appendix includes a welcome Index of the pubs mentioned.
Around 300 pubs are listed in the book.
An attractive and their former, handsome book which brings out the history and character of the pubs in the Romney Marsh.
