Ipswich Engineers Arms

Ipswich Engineers Arms

closed 14th May 1961

last owner/operator: cobbold

29 Bath St

grid reference TM 165 434

The Engineers' Arms is understood to have stood at the junction of Hawes Street and Bath Street. Comparing the photograph with the 1883 Town Plan, it appears to have stood on the north-west corner of the junction. It has since been demolished.

The New Engineers Arms in Hawes Street may be confused with this pub.
