UK Pub history and historical street directory of London and the UK

Pub history of the last 200 years, and a historical street directory of London and the UK

London and the South is very well documented.

Search the pub history sites by licensee, address or pub. This is building into a historical street directory of parts of the UK, particularly in London
The pub history site is updated every day with masses of new and old information, please check back regularly. Incidentally, if I do some free research for you, a thank you would be nice.

Peto Arms, East Street, Barking

Barking pub history index

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Essex. The  Essex listing uses information from census, Trade Directories and History to add licensees, bar staff, Lodgers and Visitors.

This pub was built as the Peto Arms in 1850, later becoming the Railway Hotel in the mid 1890's; but was demolished in 1906 when the level crossing at East Street was replaced by a bridge. The listing in Kelly's Directory for 1908 is interesting, possibly just showing the time lag between the research and the publication of these directories, or maybe the pub lived on briefly after the bridge was built. ***
