Swilland

app

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

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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.

Introduction

Swilland was listed in Domesday as "Suinlanda", which means "land where pigs are kept".

The remains of a large post mill dating from about 1800 and working until 1938, can still be seen near the junction of High Road and Charity Lane. It's now used as a pottery gallery.

The line of a Roman road runs along the northern side of the village and is now the B1078. Brooke House at nearby Ashbocking is the headquarters of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Ashbocking is also the home of James White Cider.
