In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Researching my family tree on my Grandfathers side I came across one of his brothers --,Samuel Edgar Charles Smith -- who in the 1891 census was living at 3 Angel Lane/ Duke of Edinburgh as a publican & grocer.
By 1911 census he had become a gas work fitter/ gas lamp lighter so had left the Duke of Edinburgh.From Albert Goodchild

The pub is also listed at 3 Angel Lane (1891 census).

Demolished in 1938.
