Shipmeadow Compasses?

Shipmeadow Compasses?

Thought to have been a pub but there is a degree of doubt.

The Hill

grid reference TM 382 899 (approximate location)

The 1837 OS map is marked "Compasses" at this approximate location. Was it a pub? If you know for certain one way or the other, please let us know.

There's no mention of this in the 1909 Rates book, so if it was a pub, it must have closed before then.

No pub references have been found in any of the censuses from 1841 to 1901.

A Survey of Suffolk Parish History lists a beerhouse in 1844 - perhaps this was it?
