In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Lakenheath Sedge Sheaf

Lakenheath Sedge Sheaf

also traded as Sheaf House

Closed 1920s circa.

opened 1869 circa

Sedge Fen Rd

grid reference TL 669 843

After closure the Sedge Sheaf was used as a residential house but was since demolished.

Located at TL672847, and situated in Sedge Fen, this ancient ale house's existence is now outside living memory. It probably closed early in the 1920's. The building on site is not the pub. I have a personal interest here as it is the address on my birth certificate! My parents moved to 'the Sheaf'' in 1943 and I turned up 1 year later! I recall the house as being just built from wood weather-boards, long since gone and replaced by a brick farmhouse.
