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.

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. interactive map
