http://deadpubs.co.uk/  The Historical street and Pub history directory of London, Essex, Kent, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Middlesex, Suffolk, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Sussex, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Devon and Dorset

This historical street & Pub history directory is built around the historical Pubs and churches. It ignores postal codes, which are a fairly modern addition. The site begins by listing Pubs before the 1900′s, in their original church parishes.  It continues with the addition of postal codes where appropriate, with all Pubs added in relevance to their original church parish. As confusing as this may sound, it is actually a good and fair system; and places a Pub or street in the correct locality. This historical Pubs site links the history of the Pubs to the many street name changes in London & the south east over about a century of change.
