Ipswich Old Gaolhistorical closure era: mid 20th century
closed October 20th, 1961
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:
