Ipswich Old Gaol

Ipswich Old Gaol

closed 20th October 1961

Market Ln?

grid reference TM 163 444 (approximate location)

This pub stood somewhere under the present Buttermarket Centre, probably in Market Lane.

The Borough Police licensed premises register (1903-1923) shows that a beat bobby would have walked past it between the Grand Hotel and the Falcon (now Bowman's). Apparently there was an old gaol located in Market Lane.

Market Lane is shown here on an old OS map:
