Copdock White Elm

Copdock White Elm

also traded as New Elm Inn

closed 28th September 1970

London Rd

grid reference TM 111 405

The 1838 OS map shows this pub as being at the junction with Elm Lane. The Post Office Directory of 1891 lists Kerry Lambert as landlord of the White Elm, whereas Kelly's Directory of 1892 lists the same landlord at the "New Elm Inn". The original pub was demolished when the road was widened, presumably round about that time.

Closure date from Orwell licensing records.

The "New Elm" is shown here on an old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
