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.

Shipmeadow Compasses?

Shipmeadow Compasses?

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

The Hill

grid reference TM 382 899

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?
