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.

Walton Angel

Walton Angel

closed 13th July 1937.

234 High St

grid reference TM 295 356

There has been some uncertainty about exactly which building was the Angel. Most old OS maps show it as having been the building central to our photograph (perpendicular to the road). And the listed buildings register also claims this building was an old inn. But to add confusion, the 1880s large-scale OS town plan of Walton shows the pub in the building where the Post Office is, with the other building marked as a "public hall". However, a photograph taken late in the 19th century and published in a book about Felixstowe clearly shows the perpendicular building pictured to have been the pub.

Though since maps as far back as 1881 show the building where the Post Office is as having also been a Post Office then, it seems most likely that the town plan was in error.…
