the plough inn

On the Moto Rumi club UK site there is a picture outside the Plough Inn dated 1968 as an early club outing. Does any one know where this Plough Inn was located? Was it on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent?

Re: A very RARE clutch disk

I saw some like this years ago and was told if the corks wear, buy a bottle of wine and cut up bottle cork to replace worn ones. The guy who told me this worked at Alford Bros, a Rumi dealer in Wandsworth, s e London. That was back in 1962.
