The 'Ship', Green Street Green, Kent - geograph.org.uk - 246947

The Ship Green Street Green, 2006. It's Sunday lunchtime, and quite a few customers have already arrived at this popular pub and restaurant at the junction of the B260 and B262, as a horse rider passes. The Dutch-gabled cottages beyond are not connected with the pub. The name 'Green Street Green' is not unique to this village: there is another Green Street Green just a few miles away on the A21, and still in Kent.
