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.

Woolpit Ship

Woolpit Ship

Closed between 1971 and 1974.

Borley Green

grid reference TL 995 606

This beerhouse appears on OS maps at least as late as 1971, but by the 1974 sheet it's shown as "Ship House", so evidently closed between those dates.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
