    UK Pub history research and London historical street directory

    Search the historical London street directory, and London pub history site including early street addresses in London through the Victorian pub history of London. This search engine is not brilliant, try address searches in the main google search to get better results. Searches on people names do appear to work, I think. Let me know!

    Black Horse, 40 Leman Street, Whitechapel

    This pub was present by 1810. At 20 Leman Street in 1856; The pub is believed to have been built in its present form in the 1840s. Your records of Charles Calton/Catton here in 1839 and 1840 are interesting and suggest there may have been a former pub of the same name on this site or that the building is older than it looks. I have notes that Sarah King was landlady by 1911 and was still landlady in 1929 (the latter per Post Office Directory) It changed its name to Bar Bed in 2002.  This pub closed in 2008, but has now reopened under the name ‘Zeppelin Shelter’. **
