Once this index works, I will redesign my other 100,000 pages on other sites
London is the BEST place to research, and I love it. I have a major site listing pub history according to church records. I now want to take this forward to create an in depth study of London and its streets using pubs and churches as a significant pointer to their position in modern London; and also list many of the street name changes as they happened.
This site has always avoided modern post codes to clarify an address, but rather identify the church parish that a pub existed - you have no idea how difficult this is. Here is a brief description (Chambers Guide) in 1862, before Post Codes appear to have been invented.
The general theme is / was to use an parish area to place a particular public house, beer retailer of hotel etc. This is entirely in contradiction to the modern, and apparently simple, post code system. In addition to these problems are the fact that some parishes have been entirely annihalated through time
So, with these restrictions in place (imposed by myself), I decided to add a number of 1911 census summaries, and a list of the London directories that I am referring to in research. If you prefer to follow the simple system of post codes, refer to Ewan's brilliant pubology UK site (see individual indexes further down for pubs by postcode).
Here are a number of London directories of publicans, beer houses, hotel, coffee houses etc.
And here are a number of 1911 census summaries (1911 pub crawls), these do not give much detail but often list the name of a beer house (sometimes, often).
And a few links to the pubology site as I can find them - London by modern postcode :
Pubs in Central London postcodes.
Pubs in East London postcodes.
Pubs in North London postcodes.
Pubs in North-West London postcodes.
Pubs in South-East London postcodes.
Pubs in South-West London postcodes.
Pubs in West London postcodes.
Pubs in Outer London postcodes.
