Rickinghall Superior Garden Househistorical closure era: Victorian / Edwardian
closed about 1904
A Garden House has also been seen reported in Botesdale; we are assuming that it actually meant this pub, since Rickinghall and Botesdale are contiguous and the border is difficult to discern (and may have changed in the past.)
The building dates from the 16th century, with subsequent extensions and alterations.
It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
