Keith Richards lived Here
Once them home of rock god and now cult film hero Keith Richards
Location: 33 Chastilian Road, Dartford, DA1 3JP
Description: At this address, this very spot, above what is now the 'Darling Buds Of Kent' florists, back in 1949 saw the start of the world's greatest rock band...well one pivotal part.
Back in 1949 one Keith Richards moved into the flat above the shop (it was then a greengrocer), with his Mum and Dad - a council flat with two bedrooms and a lounge.
Mick Jagger lived a street away on 'Denver Road' and the pair went to Wentworth Primary School.
Should be a blue plaque - Keith lived there from 1949 to 1952 in a tiny room.
