The Star was closed in the 1920s and demolished soon afterwards.

It's thought to be right on the corner of Camps Road.

It's shown as a pub on the 1886 OS map, but seems to have gone by the 1904 sheet (other nearby pubs are still shown), so possibly closed between those dates. Curiously, there are directory and census entries later than 1904; so perhaps by then it was off-sales only?

The photographs can be dated to within 25 years as the pub belongs to F C Christmas of the Haverhill Brewery.

(The brewery - and associated pub estate - was purchased by Christmas from William Ward in 1893 and sold on to Greene King in 1918).
