I have moved the map point for The Salisbury Arms (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1291/) in Luton, and it requires approval because of the distance from the original point. The full address here is 215 Selbourne Road - the map pointer was near to the end of the road (single digit numbers). Please amend the address.

Similarly for the Wigmore Arms (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1308/), which was in the wrong part of Wigmore Lane. I have moved it to the correct spot, which will need approval. I'm wondering if the postcode is wrong, because it's right next to Asda (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=LU2+8AD&hl=en&ll=51.887829,-0.372022&spn=0.001722,0.006899&sll=51.888008,-0.371357&sspn=0.00191,0.003449&vpsrc=6&hnear=LU2+8AD,+United+Kingdom&t=h&z=17&layer=c&cbll=51.887832,-0.372023&panoid=f2suTuLqVXfMryZP6g_2zg&cbp=11,337.91,,0,-7.14) (LU2 9TA) and Wigmore Library (LU2 8DJ) but the postcode that is quoted on all listings for this pub is for houses in the range 86 to 136, which are about half a mile away. The pub is part of the Wigmore House development, which is listed as both LU2 9TN and LU2 8AD: the latter is the postcode we have for the pub, so maybe this is where the error stems from. I can't find the Wigmore Arms on Royal Mail's postcode website.

Another address that needs clarifying is Alfie's Bar (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1270/), which is at 152 Wellington Street. Again the map point was on the wrong part of this long street, but this one doesn't need approving, just the address amending. Please insert the apostrophe too.:)

Hi sheffield hatter,

We have corrected the addresses of The Salisbury Arms (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1291/) and Alfie's Bar (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1270/).

The Wigmore Arms (http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/1308/) appears to be at the correct postcode (although interestingly the other 2 weren't, which you didn't mention :)), but it is odd that it doesn't seem to be on the royal mail site.

Thanks for those.
