In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

Redisham Wig

Redisham Wig

Closed between 1922 and the 1930s.

Halesworth Rd

grid reference TM 401 842

The pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1957, but by the 1975 sheet it's shown as "Wig House". The 1910 Rates book lists the pub, but has a later annotation, "late", so it must have closed between 1922 (the last recorded landlord) and the 1930s, the period for which the book was in use.

Although not clear, the name in the Rates book appears to be the "Wigg".

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