Castle St was roughly where the New Wolsey Theatre now stands. The Ipswich licensing records and Rate books show that although listed as a beerhouse, it was only licensed for off-sales.

Demolished as part of the Civic drive development.

The Company of Joiners were granted a coat of arms in 1571. Traditionally they were usually employed in producing more ornamental work than carpenters.
