Why was it called Mulberry? Because Felling Hall had a mulberry tree. Lots of big houses did, encouraged by King James who wanted to create a silk industry in England and silk worms were fond of mulberry trees. We still have mulberry trees but are a tad short on silk worms. This pic is about 1880 when Mary Clark was the publican. That heading to the pic is misleading..Felling Hall was demolished long ago. Brandling School stands on or close to the site of Felling Hall

Now converted to flats
