In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.

Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.

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…
