I am very interested in any photos or information you have of the Appledore pubs. I am researching all the pubs in Kent. All details can be found from my web site at www.Dover-Kent.Com Direct link to the Appledore pubs is here:- http://www.dover-kent.com/2014-villages/Appledore.html I can be contacted directly from the email address at the bottom of each page.
Thanks, Paul Skelton.

Hi Karl,

Many thanks for this - much appreciated. Since I posted, the book I was researching (Much Drinking in the Marsh) has been published. However, it has nearly sold out and I am discussing with the publisher whether to go down the route of a second print run, or an updated version (as so many more pubs have closed in the last 2 years). If we do the latter, it would be very helpful to have a photo of the Victoria. If so, we would of course credit your assistance, and also give you a complimentary copy. Would you be able / happy to provide me with an electronic copy?

Thanks again and best wishes,

Keith S

Hi Keith,

Are you still interested in pics of Victoria Inn? i have a postcard from 1911 showing it. My grandfather was born in Victoria Terrace in 1900 which is very close to where it was. Lots of my ancesters were born in Appledore and I have a collection of over 200 cards. Regards, Karl Neve

I am currently researching a book on the pubs of Romney Marsh and surrounding villages and would appreciate any information about the former Victoria Inn. Appledore has a rich pub heritage including the Queen's Arms, the Bell, Railway Hotel, Swan and Red / Black Lion. But I am struggling to find out much about the Victoria. I know that it opened some time between 1847 - 1897 and that it was still listed in a directory of 1982. I was originally assured that it was located on the junction with Kenardington Road and that it is still in use as a private dwelling. But others have told me that it was demolished to make way for new housing. I'd be very grateful if anyone could put me right on this.

Many thanks in anticipation,

Keith Swallow
