Pub history and London

Old Basing House, 27 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch E2

At 172 Kingsland Road in 1861 and earlier before road renumbering. Since around 2000 it has been named 'On the Rocks' and is now more of a nightclub than strictly speaking a pub. ** This appears to have the same details about 1869 to 1874 as the Castle, Kingsland road, i.e. the 1869 license transfer and the 1874 LV directory list this as the Crown, Kingsland road; as does the 1875 license transfer.
