Beccles Race Horse

Beccles Race Horse

Closed 1850s/1860s?

Ingate

grid reference TM 427 898 (approximate location)

The Race Horse was located on south side of Ingate.

A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" tells us that "this would no doubt get its name by being near the common where Beccles races used to be held and it must have closed soon after the races were discontinued about 60 or 70 years ago.

Census locations suggest that the Race Horse (1861), Blacksmith's Arms (by 1881) and Victoria Arms (by 1891) may all be the same pub. If you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.
