Woolpit Crown

Woolpit Crown

Closed between 1912 and 1975?

The Street

grid reference TL 973 624

The pub appears on the 1904 OS map but has gone by the 1975 sheet (intermediate ones are insufficiently detailed). Presumably it closed between 1916 (the last directory entry found so far) and 1975. The building dates from about 1600, though it's much rebuilt since. The Listed Buildings Register describes it as

A rare example of a rural galleried inn of this period.

Five borders are listed in 1891 and the Crown is listed as a commercial hotel in 1900 & 1912.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
