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.

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. interactive map
