Plough,  89 St Johns Hill, Clapham, London, SW11 1SY

Usually listed at Ye Plough Hotel, at Wandsworth Road in 1851 census. Ye Old Plough Inn, on St. John's Hill, which was built a.d. 1701, and was pulled down in 1874, the present " Plough " being erected upon the site. In front of the old inn grew an oak tree, beneath its shade travellers used to sit and enjoy their refreshments. There is some grounds for the belief that the notorious Dick Turpin once stayed at this house for some time, when he was nightly visiting the Garrett Lane district, the lane was then a lonely Surrey high road, leading to Tooting and Merton, where many of the gentry resided whom Turpin used to intercept on their way home, and demand his toll. Tradition says that he was often in hiding at the " Plough," when he was hard pressed by the men of law (1913).  *
