Beccles Cross Keys

Beccles Cross Keys

Closed between 1965 and 1974

opened 1730 or earlier

22 Hungate

grid reference TM 422 901

This building seems to be a rebuild of the pub, which is listed as far back as 1730, as it was described as "newly erected" at a sale in 1855.

It's still listed in licensing records as late as 1965; other records suggest it had closed by 1974, so it seems likely to have closed between those years.

The address we list is from the 1909 rates records.

It's shown (but not named) on this OS town plan of 1884.
