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.
43 Woodbridge Rd
grid reference TM 167 446
This is a former beer shop.
Our picture and map location shows what would have been the Swan, assuming the street's numbering scheme is unchanged.
It's listed as residential in the 1932 Kelly's Directory.
The Swan is actually listed at an unnumbered property two properties after 43, on the lower side, in the 1871 census, so it could be at 39. The property does not appear to be listed in the 1861 or 1881 censuses, so it may have been demolished to make way for new houses. Further information is required.
