Brakspear pubs in 2017

This is 2017. I run a number of pub history sites around the UK. They are all lacking in modern detail. I thought it time to add some additional detail for the pubs that still exist, or in many cases, have just been created. Many of the pubs in London and the UK, are just old banks, old offices, and generally have the name old in their name to indicate they are brand new pubs.

Here are over 137 Brakspear pubs as I find them in one list. Pub history in 2017.

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!
