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.

Troston King William

Troston King William

Closed 1840-1920.

Ixworth Rd

grid reference TL 898 721

The 1871 census records the King William in Ixworth Road. The 1861 census records John Hunt as a blacksmith (not publican or pub) in Thorpe Road.

Our map location and photo show King William House, which we presume to be the old pub, or at least, at its location (though comparing the current building with that shown on the 1892 25" OS map, it appears to have been somewhat enlarged).
