Help needed

As well as documenting Suffolk's current pubs, we are running an on-going project to research and document all of the county's former pubs. In the course of our research we have come across many old pubs (or possible old pubs) which we cannot identify satisfactorily.

In some cases we have found buildings which appear to have been pubs but we can't identify them because we have no record of a pub in that location. In other cases we have an approximate location for a named pub but we're not sure if we've found the correct building. We also have a number of pubs which we have found on old maps but can't identify them.

Where possible, we have published photographs and maps of putative pubs, to aid in identification

This list contains only those pubs which we have at least some information about. There are a great many about which we have just a name and village for. A list of these can be found here.

If you can help us to make a definite identification of any of these pubs (or even tell us for sure a building wasn't a pub), please contact Nigel Smith. This will be of great help in our desire to preserve as much information possible about our county's pub history.
