Welcome to the Pembury History website
Blank line using white text. Also good for comments.
The History part of the Pembury web site has migrated away from the main site to a home of its own. This is to enable us to expand the history content without appearing to dominate or swamp the regular content. Much has been written about Pembury over the years, and this web site is an ideal environment to act as an anchor or focal point for all that information. What you see here is a start. Hopefully much more will follow in years to come. There are menu selections for historic pictures and maps, lists of the old shops and pubs, but nothing as yet about the churches, manors or farms.
We are hoping to populate these pages with dedicated articles, maps and compilations. The Shops and Retail compilation is typical of the type of project that relies on community contributions. We have started off with dedicated maps of the village that show the locations of shops past and present. In an associated table we plan to list as many of the old businesses that have occupied a particular shop, along with the shopkeeper’s name and date of occupation. All additions and corrections are welcome. All contributors will be acknowledged. This kind of compilation project will stay open.
