Sources for history of London

I have come across many sources while researching background notes for walks, the most frequently consulted are below. If you think I have used your sources and inadequately acknowledged them please inform me so I can correct that. Equally, please email me if you discover a link is out of date so I can correct it. I am always interested in new sources. The links in blue have access to maps with walking. The first table is shared with walks sources as many links contain both history and walking..
