old OS map

A pub appears at this location as late as the 1927 OS map, but seems to have gone by the 1969 sheet (those available in between are not sufficiently detailed) so it seems likely the pub closed between those dates. It seems to have been relatively short-lived as a pub, as there isn't even a building at this location on the 1884 OS town plan or any map up to 1890. It only appears (as a pub) on the 1905 sheet.

A Smith, in his paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (kindly supplied by Daryl Ling) gives us 1965 as the pub's closure date.…
