Some historical notes about the pub:
Some historical notes:
“At one time a beer and cider house, the buildings of the Royal Oak are thought to be at least 500 years old. The Inn had a 35-foot well in the public bar which was visible through a glass panel. In the 1950s this well, which was used by pilgrims on their way to Thomas a Becket’s tomb at Canterbury, was recorded as a possible safe supply of drinking water in the event of atomic warfare.”
The philanthropist and co-founder of the National Trust, Octavia Hill, lived nearby in Larksfield from 1884. On her death in 1912, despite being offered a burial in Westminster Abbey, Octavia Hill had previously chosen to be buried in the graveyard of Holy Trinity Church in Crockham Hill. Her grave is to be seen with those of her sisters to the right of the path to the south porch.
There is also a recumbent marble effigy of Octavia Hill beside the altar in the church.
