Prince of Wales, 1a Sudely Street, Islington N1

Islington index

Also listed as at the address of 139 Graham street. Named in 1911 census summary. Also known as the Queen Victoria, this pub was situated at the junction of Wharfdale Road and York Way (formerly York Road), north side.  * It was rebuilt in 1938, and now reopening under a new name (Plaquemine Lock, in honour of my gran) this year. However I have spent a squillion saving the pub, and restoring the building to its former glory. *** The early directories list this as the Prince of Wales at least as early as 1948 and newspaper reports it back to 1845. In the 1841 census, James Emmerton is a tailor at 1 Sudeley street, and the 1841 directory does not list a public house which is quite normal, but the census does! Interestingly, there are a number of new builds for sale by auction in 1840 which includes numbers 2 to 7 Sudeley street. * Closed in 2014. *+
