Earl Stonham Cricketershistorical closure era: mid 20th century
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. larger map
