  • Chris Pearson says...
  • Up field passing top cottage other side of hedge. The Kentish horse flag of Kent (prancing white horse on red background) is neatly painted on each side of the bright white trig. The story associated with this flag is that sometime after the Norman invasion William was ambushed in the forest that then existed outside Strood astride the London Road (the modern A2). Wiliam's escort were overpowered and he found himself at the mercy of a group of outlawed Saxon nobles. In exchange for his freedom they were pardoned and as the men of Kent had overpowered the conqueror the county was given the right to use its old emblem and the new motto 'Invicta', 'Unconquered'. The pub is Markbech is called the Kentish Horse.
