Nacton White House maltings

Nacton White House maltings

Closed pre-1840

grid reference TM 208 391

All we know about these premises is a single newspaper report:

To be lett, against Michaelmas next, a House called the White House and a very good large Malting-Office, situate by the Water-side at Nacton, near Ipswich, late in the occupation of Mr Thomas Beart, Hoyman, deceased; very convenient for Shipping of all Sorts of Corn, from a Key, lately made there. Enquire at the Three Cups in Ipswich any Saturday or of Mr Sparram, at the Sign of the Griffin in Framlingham (12th April 1740 edition refers to a John Sparham, Vintner of Framlingham).Ipswich Journal, August 18th 1739***

This was probably not a pub, but a malting office and quay-side used for the shipping of grain.

Based on the description of its location, it seems this may be what's now shown on maps as Yachtsman's Cottage…
