The Kangaroo Inn was built in 1740
but it wasn’t until 100 years later that it became a public house. Details of The Kangaroo’s past lives can be found on some of the walls in the pub including details of its sale from The Oaker Estate, back in 1949.
Since the naming of The Kangaroo back in 1840, the origin of its name is not quite clear, though it is believed to be associated with the S.S. Kangaroo, an Atlantic cable runner.
Lost in time and with the divisions of land, are the facts. It is hoped that with current research and a little help from friends (hint, hint) we may soon prove it’s true origin.
