This pub was established by 1585. ** It is actually listed as part of North Finchley in the census. The address is variously given in old sources as Heath End, Hampstead Heath or Upper Heath, and even Highgate Road in 1839. *

Spaniards Inn, Hampstead Heath - circa 1880

I date it as 1880 or earlier because I believe that after 1880 “Charrington Head” ceased to be known by that name and just used “Charrington & Co”.

What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with 1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
