Overview | Historical info | Public transport | Map

In the 1861 census this beer house was listed as the Soldiers Friend and located two houses after Grimwade's Cottages in Anglesea Road, between 3 & 5 (at 4?). The location suggests the this is the Suffolk Artillery Arms, listed at 13 Anglesea Rd. by 1871. (Probable street renumbering)

At that time the cavalry barracks were still located nearby (now redeveloped as housing in the Cecil Road & Geneva Road area).
