London historical street directory and pub history

Most of the properties on my site are now probably listed on rightmove as residential property rather than pubs, perhaps they would like to sponsor this site?

The Feathers early address according to trade directories is the Feathers, 22 Temple Street; but at the same time it is listed (un-named) in the 1851 and 1861 census at 1 Temple Lane. This pub was rebuilt in 1895 and in around this year it also took the alternative name of Temple Restaurant. It was again rebuilt in 1974 and is now called the Witness Box. **
