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.

Witnesham Carpenters' Arms

Witnesham Carpenters' Arms

Closed before 1882?.

opened pre-1712

Mill Ln

grid reference TM 183 502

The Carpenters' Arms doesn't appear in the 1956-1967 Orwell licensing records. It isn't mentioned on the 1909 Rates book. And it fails to appear on any available OS maps (as early as 1882) so must have closed a long time ago.

According to A Survey of Suffolk Parish History, the pub was recorded as long ago as 1712.
