Botesdale Crown

Botesdale Crown

Closed between 1840 and 1920

Crown Hill, The St

grid reference TM 048 759

The Crown was a commercial inn and posting house, known to date back at least to 1782 when it was mentioned in an advertisement in the Norfolk Chronicle.

The cottage immediately to the left of this building appears separately in the Listed Buildings Register as "Crown Hill Cottage [...] formerly part of a coaching inn", so was evidently once part of this building.

Having examined the Hartismere licensing records from 1923 to 1962 and found no trace of this pub, we conclude it must have closed before 1923.
