Ipswich Wellington Inn

Ipswich Wellington Inn

Closed about 1875

38 Carr St

grid reference TM 165 445

The Wellington Inn* had a central arched passageway through to the yard at the rear of the premises, as shown in a photograph in "People & Places (A Pictorial History)" by the Ipswich & Norwich Society (2000) on page 14, and on the OS Map of 1883.

The Wellington Inn* was purchased in 1875 as a replacement for the original Co-Op that was located at No 34 Carr st, (now used as a furnishings shop). The inn was used for a while (particularly the meeting rooms away from the retail frontage) but was demolished prior to 1886 when the new Co-Op Central Premises (Drapery Store) opened.

This may have been another name for the Duke of Wellington.
