Woodbridge Wellington

Woodbridge Wellington

also traded as Shoulder of Mutton, Volunteer

closed 10th October 1909

20 & 20a Cumberland St

grid reference TM 271 488

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Wellington's license was issued in 1853. Whether this was when it was first licensed or when it got a full (ie not just beer) license isn't clear, though the latter seems more probable.

The license was surrendered in October 1909. A letter From W Banks (on behalf of Cobbold & Co) to F I W Wood esq. Clerk to the Justices, Woodbridge, gives the date of closure as 10th Oct 1909. The last landlady was Mrs Tuthill.

It's shown on this OS town plan of 1881.
