This post-card shows the original pub and the Victorian one which was demolished or maybe even bombed. The cellar is interesting in that a stream runs through it - I remember the Landlord and Landlady slept down there in 1976 as it was a monstrously hot summer!.
Someone told me that Maple Road (Penge) had more pubs than any other street in London. ***

We may need to compare that with Hertfordshire where every other house was a Pub, and maybe many other places
