The first picture is the oldest photo of the Albion which
is still thriving and well worth a visit. Recently it was awarded
community Pub of the year by one of the local newspapers.
The second is a more recent photograph, sixties, I guess
by the logos, George Pluckwell in his book "Rowhedge in old
picture postcards" dates this as 1935 but I am not sure that is right.
However, I much indebted to George, sadly he is no is no longer with us.
The second photo is my favourite showing the Albion on
the immediate left. The Anchor is the building with the tall chimney
in front of the Fales single decker bus. Behind car on the
left, is situated the Ship Inn. As I have said above the Albion
is still open for business and well worth a visit.
A contemporary view of the Albion looking up toward the
Anchor which can be seen on the right with the large chimney.
