The Wherry is listed on the west side of Northgate. According to A Smith's paper "Inns of Beccles in 1929" (supplied by Daryl Ling) it was next door to the Lord Nelson. On the basis of this description, this building seems to have been the Wherry, though there is a little doubt about this; it may actually have been at number 27.
