Lee: Old Tigerís Head and old New Tigerís Head
The Old Tigerís Head pub, left of picture is opposite the now boarded-up New Tigerís Head, right. A notice in the doorway of the boarded up pub notes a bit of history:
ďThis public house was built in the 18th century to service travellers moving from the Kent coast to central London via Blackheath.
The house was frequently the centre of a frozen lake during the early 1800s when the Quaggy River regularly broke its banks and froze over from January to June.
Its busiest time was just prior to the Battle of Waterloo when for three weeks troops moved continuously from London to Dover via Lee Green.
The New Tigerís Head is one of many public houses with the word "Tiger" in its title ó so named to glory in the sport of tiger hunting in the days of the Indian raj.Ē

Today, the Quaggy Rivers seems hardly capable of such inconvenience Ė see TQ3975 : Lee: Quaggy River.
