Dowager’s Bottom

Having said in the previous post that I couldn’t find The Crown Pub on John Rocque’s London survey map from 1746, I’ve found it on another site:
Section from John Rocque's survey map of Blackheath

If you look just below the delightfully named “Dowager’s Bottom”, you can see a sprinkling of buildings, around the triangle that is now Tranquil Vale and the Royal Parade.

  1. They should rename the pub, if only so an old joke can live again. “Anyone know when the Dowager’s Bottom opens?”
