Haughley Railway Tavern
also traded as as: Station Hotel, Railway Innhistorical closure era: 21st century
Station Rd, IP14 3QP
The building has been empty and very neglected for a good few years. In 2014 it was sold so perhaps something's going to be done with it now. Though since the station is long-gone and it's rather remote, it's unlikely to be a pub again. In the spring of 2017, we noticed that work to renovate the building had started. Though once started it seemed to have ground to a halt.
Also listed at Railway Hotel, Railway Station & Haughley Old Street, and at Newton Road in 1881 census.
The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
