The pub history sites are regularly updated by Stephen Harris and kevan, plus an 'open' group of like-minded individuals on a daily basis; and anyone is welcome to contribute. We are not a society, but a random group of people with similar interests in mapping the usage of old buildings, public houses, taverns, hotels and Inns through time. Why not join us, there is no cost in getting involved, and any contribution to pub history is welcome.

Here is a local search of the pub history site, including the 70,000+ web pages & 10,000+ images.
Sussex pub history index
This information is for Brighton, it includes Trade Directory listings from 1832 onwards. In starting a new area of research, it is always good to have a background of the area, I choose to list as much information as possible over a period of years. In researching Sussex, the town of Brighton appeared a good starting point, and hence the listings.
