Caption for Datchworth, The Tilbury C1965:
The pub was originally called the Tilbury Fort. The name and licence were moved from a public house standing on the corner of the churchyard and owned by the parish. The rent was paid to the Overseer for the relief of the poor. In 1838 the house was bought from the parish by William and Joseph Lucas, the Hitchin brewers, who transferred the sign and licence to the already existing Three Horsehoes.
