The Rising Sun 05.12.1999
December 1999

Henry Goodson applied to the Licensing Authorities 3rd April 1918, to transfer the licence to Lily Eglington, who was then in residence at the Rising Sun. The next Petty Sessions were to be held at Aylsham on 23rd April 1918.

Bullards recorded in May 1957 that sales 
were 78 barrels in 1937 
79 barrels in 1938 and
85 barrels in 1939
`Trade has to be as much as possible in the summer in order that the tenant can obtain a reasonable living, since the Winter trade consists of only local mild beer customers, and not many of them at that'
For this reason Bullards advised the Licensed Property Valuer that the proposed 
rate assessment rise from £40 pa to £75 pa could not be agreed with.
They added that current sales under their tenant Mr Wilkins was in the order of 110 barrels.
He was a `very well known personality in Norfolk, having served a number of years in the Norfolk Constabulary. He advertises extensively ..... and we are sure that if you called in 
you would agree that he and his wife are a delightful couple.'
Bullards confirmed that wine & spirit sales for 1956 had only been 15 dozen bottles.
`It must be realised that the potential of the Rising Sun is not very good since it is virtually at the head of the navigable head of the river Bure ..... and the Anchor Hotel is only a very short distance away and has infinitely greater facilities ....'
`We believe that £50 pa would be a fair gross assessment'

In early July 1963 Bullards advised the Licensed Property Valuer that works had been completed to provide the property with a bathroom and flush toilets. This was for the benefit of the licensee who had previously `had what we might describe as a home made bathroom in the kitchen, this having been put in by the previous tenants.'
The rents were confirmed to be £30 per annum before the alterations and £60 following completion. Sales for the previous 12 months to 30th June 1963 were 123 barrels of draught beer, 61 barrels of bottled beer and 116 gallons of wines & spirits.

2nd August 1963 - `Further to your visit to this office on Wednesday of this week I would now inform you that I have seen the licensee this morning and he is quite happy for your suggested new gross figure of £175 p.a. ....'
