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.

Needham Market Wagon

Needham Market Wagon

also traded as Bell

closed 1756

opened 1544

125-127 High St

grid reference TM 087 551

The building can be traced back to 1437, and was built as a private house close to the church. St John's chapel was rebuilt in 1495 with a small bell tower, which may explain the earlier name.

Benjamin Garnham, a common carrier, lived at 127 in 1812 and may help to explain the renaming.

No further references have been found after 1756, when it was owned by Webster Adams, but may have become part of George.

The building was demolished in 1960.
