Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

An early 19th century pub located just outside the village, on the outskirts of Ipswich.

It is now closed and has been converted to residential use.

The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Falcon's license was issued in 1853, though it's shown on the 1838 OS map, so this was probably just a conversion from a beerhouse license to full one.

One source shows the Falcon at 165 Humber Doucy Lane. This seems to be an error.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
