The Horse and Groom in Charlton, being on the corner of Charlton Lane, and on the main Greenwich to Woolwich Road. I have attached a picture of as it was in 1956 and it was certainly that way in 1970.
Arthur and Frances Watts were the licensees over that period and when they retired the brewery (Courage & Barclay) took it over and it became a managed house. ***
