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.

Walton Feathers

Walton Feathers

also traded as Three Feathers

Closed early 2013.

opened 1712

last owner/operator: Punch

231 High St, IP11 9DT

grid reference TM 295 356

Found boarded-up and for sale, May 2013.

Built late 16th - early 17th century.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Feathers' license was issued in 1842. This probably refers to its full (ie not just beer) license, since it's apparently been trading as a pub since 1712 (according to an Ipswich Star report).

In 2013 the building was sold by Punch Taverns to developers Roseberry Property Development Co Ltd who had their design for conversion to residential use approved by local council in March 2014. It has since been converted to residential use.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (larger map)
