Beccles Lord Nelson

Beccles Lord Nelson

also traded as Volunteer Arms

West, 52.4609,1.56327

Closed :between 1920 and 1970

29 Northgate

grid reference TM 421 907

Recorded as the Volunteer Arms in 1878, the Lord Nelson by 1880.

Closure date from "Inns of Beccles in 1929", a paper by A Smith (courtesy of Daryl Ling). This paper also identifies the pub as "at the corner of Thurlows Yard". As far as can be ascertained, the correct building must be in the yard, behind what was probably the Wherry.
