Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

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?
