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.

Pakenham Woolpack

Pakenham Woolpack

Closed between 1958 and 1974?

Bury Rd

grid reference TL 930 701

Located just outside Ixworth, the building dates from the late 17th century. Due to its closer proximity to Ixworth than to the main Pakenham settlement, it has sometimes been recorded in the former village.

The pub is shown on the 1958 OS map but not on the 1974 or subsequent sheets, so presumably closed between those dates.

It can be see on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
