In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

A number of pubs are providing takeaway food and/or drinks during the Covid-19 lockdown. Some offer deliveries, while others are selling from the premises. This page lists details of those we know about.

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.

Lawshall Green Man

Lawshall Green Man

Closed between 1958 and 1980.

Folly Ln

grid reference TL 848 570

The Green Man is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but by the 1980 sheet it's marked "The Willows", so evidently closed between those dates.

The building is now almost completely obscured from the road by trees, so our photographer couldn't get a good picture as he didn't want to trespass.

It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map

It has also been reported as being in Whepstead, as it's very close to the parishes' mutual boundary. However, as this report from the Bury Free Press** makes clear, it was in Lawshall.
