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.

Earl Stonham Cricketers

Earl Stonham Cricketers

Closed between 1920 and 1970

Church Meadow, Forward Green

grid reference TM 094 596

The old Cricketers was built in 1630, according to the date pargetted into the wall. It's shown as a beerhouse on OS maps at least as late as 1957, but apparently just as a house by the 1969 sheet, so presumably closed between those dates.

The 1910 Rates book records the Cricketers as a shop owned by Greene King. So it may be that it was only ever an off-sales beerhouse.

It can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
