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.

Palgrave Swan

Palgrave Swan

Closed between 1920 and 1970

Lion Rd

grid reference TM 115 783

The Swan was built late in the 16th century, with 20th century alterations.

We understand that the Swan was the last of Palgrave's pubs to close. The date is uncertain, though it was certainly still open in 1968 (the latest licensing records we've seen so far).

The remnants of a tiled sign on the section of building nearest the road show that this was a Lacon's pub.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
