Elizabeth Hopgood advises 07.02.2005 :-

My Grandfather was publican at the Dog Inn Hingham,
 Frank Cecil Hubbard.
My mother, now aged 82 remembers living there with her parents, Frank Cecil and Mahala Gertrude Hubbard from 1926 to 1932.
Mother says the pub was built to house the men building the church. She remembers there were 2 bars, only men went in them of course, there was a separate smokers bar. Ladies could go into the publicans own lounge to sit and have a drink. There was a kitchen for washing up and a passage with steps to the cellar. Upstairs there were 3 bedrooms and another staircase to the attic.

The toilet was across the road in a yard with a water pump and stables. The toilets were interesting, the men had a toilet, but the ladies had 3 seats in a row.

There is also a ghost story. ‘The Grey Lady’ would walk at night sometimes. She would walk into my mothers bedroom and sit on the end of the bed. My mother was 4 at the time and had no previous knowledge of her, so it must be true. The dog would not go into this room.  Apparently there had been a death of a serving girl years before.

Many thanks for the information and photograph.
