Kessingland Queen's Head

Closed between 2011 and 2016

26 High St, NR33 7QQ

The Queen's Head was a locals' pub on the main road though the village.

We don't have an accurate closure date, but it was between our photographer's two visits in July 2011 and September 2016. In January 2020, an application was lodged to convert the building into holiday lets.

The pub is shown (though not named) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
