Ipswich Fox & Hounds

Ipswich Fox & Hounds

closed 13th June 1919

opened mid-1840s

10 Tanners St

grid reference TM 159 444 (approximate location)

This was probably a later name for the Boot, in Austin Street, St Mary at the Elm civil parish. Austin Street probably became part of Tanner's Street between 1861 and 1874.

The Fox & Hounds has also been variously listed in Austin Street (St Mary at the Elm parish), at 27 Tanner's Lane (in 1865), at 37 Tanner's Lane (in 1888), at 29 Tanner's Lane (1874 & 1891) and also at 118 Tanner's Lane. The 1909 Ipswich Rate book lists it at number ten Tanner's Street.

Tanner's Lane ran roughly where the stretch of Civic Drive between Handford Road and Princes Street now runs, with Tanners Street running east to Curriers Lane.

The pub's closure date was recorded in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923 (the month is uncertain as the handwriting's not very good).…
