The Felling Pubs A to Y

Back in the industrial heyday The Felling was awash with pubs and I'm about to list every pub there ever was. Why? Why not, it will be the first/only record and it will be searchable for genealogists, local historians and folk who just love pubs. The list is large but bear in mind there are more names than there were ever pubs. Name changes were frequent. The Black House in Windy Nook, for example, back in the 1800's changed its name 4 times in a 24 year period.(Names are included in the following list contained in a purple box

Shared Colours = Same pubs, with name change P = Present name
Grey = Demolished or no longer a pub H meaning now housing, S meaning shop,
C = Still a pub, but closed

Is this true?
