Wickhambrook Queen

Wickhambrook Queen

also traded as Wickham Queen, Queen's Head

Closed between 1958 and 1977

Genesis Green

grid reference TL 753 583

The building appears in the Listed Buildings Register as "Byford House, Barber's Lane, but now known as Queen's House". The building dates from the 16th or 17th century and it was re-fronted in the early 19th century.

Sadly it's virtually impossible to photograph without trespassing, so our photo is not very good.

The pub is shown as "Queen" or "Queen Inn" on the OS maps from 1885 to 1958. By the 1977 sheet it's marked as "Queen's Cottage" so evidently closed between 1958 and 1977.

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