Tonbridge and Pembury appear on the London to Rye road on all old maps.

Hastings was not a noted destination, so there are no references to ‘London to Hastings’ as a route.

Note that most of these maps have references to milestones, and the distances are deemed to be from London Bridge. The accuracy of the ‘mile’ is unknown, and should be treated with suspicion
