Tuddenham St Martin
As pubs across the county are starting to reopen, we're trying to collate a comprehensive list of those that have reopened or are close to it. Our list can be found on this page.
Although the government has now allowed pubs to reopen, many are still unable to do so safely, while most if not all are only able to accommodate limited numbers of customers. Many of them are still reliant on providing takeaway food and/or drinks. 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 difficult times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support as possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
Please tell us if you know of any pubs here which have reopened after lockdown.
A village tucked away in a surprisingly deep valley, carved out by the river Fynn. Several good walks follow its course. A Roman settlement can be identified here. A hoard of Roman coins dating from Constantinius II to Honorius, as well as a gold ring and pot, were found in a sandpit in the late-1930s.
The village was a major centre of brickmaking until the beginning of the 20th century; something remembered on the village sign.
