The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Lakenheath High Bridge House

Lakenheath High Bridge House

closed 1960

High Bridge Gravel Rd

grid reference TL 702 833

Located at TL703834. It was situated at a bridge crossing an old drainage canal, now dried out itself by the building of a bigger cut-off channel to protect the fens in the 1960's. The building was demolished, very little evidence remains. Tried to buy beer here as a 14 year old but was refused! Guess at closure around 1960, photos exist showing it to be a Bullards house.
