Ipswich Wherry Inn (Old Wherry)historical closure era: date unknown
A public house is shown at this location on the 1932 valuation map. According to the book, "A Victorian Vision, the building of Ipswich Wet Dock",
The Wherry Inn has gone to make way for Isaac Lord's coal yard.which would fit with this location.
The St Clement's church rates book for 1811 lists this as "The Old Wherry". Whether this means it had closed by then or was trading under that name to differentiate itself from the other Wherry Inn isn't known.
Some of the early entries for the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn) may in fact refer to this pub. An 1884 map shows a public house to the east of the location of the Wherry Inn (New Wherry Inn), which suggests that the pub may have been rebuilt next door. (See above).
