Romford pub history index

The modern address is listed as Colchester Road, and better known as Gallows Corner. **

For the History of Romford & other areas of Havering:

The Woodman and the Plough are both on the Romford Common, the Plough is now near to Gallows Corner, and the Woodman is near to Hare Street (now the main Road) in the census, it would place it very well as being North of Gidea Park on the way towards Harold Hill. The Plough at gallows Corner was severely damaged by a fire in  April 2011. There are now plans for a new KFC to replace the pub.
