Coach & Horses, 175 Clapham Park Road, Clapham SW4

Clapham pub history index

In 1861 at 7 Park road, although the numbering is messy. In 1881 census and earlier the lower numbered properties were part of Park road, I am therefore presuming that 151 Clapham Park road is the earlier address for this property; with the same tenant (Frith) for 25 years. This is also proven by the renumbering of the Clock House.
