Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Felixstowe Ferry Sun Inn

Closed unknown

Richard Cobbold's novel "The History of Margaret Catchpole", based loosely on Catchpole's life, has her brother Edward staying at one point in the Sun Inn at Bawdsey Ferry (now known as Felixstowe Ferry). Whether this was an older name for one of the two other pubs documented here or a different one is unknown.

Although Cobbold's story about Catchpole was mostly fantasy, he does seem pretty reliable where geography is concerned, so we can probably be fairly confident this pub probably did exist.
