My mother and father took over the Crown, Tranquil Vale, Blackheath on 25th August 1958, and they stayed until May 9th 1963. They they moved to the Swiss Cottage in Forest Hill (at 149 Stanstead Road). Then in July 1965 we all moved to the Mulberry Tree in Margate before running  the Bricklayers Arms in Best Lane, Canterbury (20/3/68 - 20/12/68). My late father, an insurance broker by profession, decided to take a 10 year break from that and go into the licensed trade. One could do such a thing in those days. The family decided to go back to a private house in 1968. *
