I think I have it.  The far end of West Street, Faversham.  First glance looks like many of those building still exisit.

Thats it Grandarog.


This pic was a GTP on the other site some years ago. Its just round the corner from where I lived.


I recently noticed on our KHF pub thread that the pub that replaced it; The Good Intent,  has just been demolished to make way for houses. The pic on The Good Intent thread is roughly where this was taken from; albeit some years apart. 


On your map link its identified as the Lifeboat with the Good Intent further down Queen St. In fact The Good Intent was on the Lifeboats site, and the pub further down is The Morden Arms. My dad was resident musician in the Morden Arms so I knew it well.


So over to you,  :)

Looks like it,s time to fire up the time machine for this one.
Are we definitely in one of the Medway Urban areas, Gillingham ,Chatham, Rochester, Strood ??
.


Yes Medway Towns. Nothing in the pic remains, but that particular spot has been mentioned elsewhere recently, and not to far from here

.  Hard to imagine shipbuilding went on there when you drive through the silted up area now.  Chapel Down Vineyard is just up the road from here.


Over to you ...

  Ship building there featured on Time Team some years back probably still available on line

Does the pub on the right still exist?


No it doesn't John.  And as we have recently been informed, the next one built in that location doesn't exist either.  :)

Quick guess as the layout looks similar - Dale Street Chatham


Right part of Kent
