A Ploughing Match took place here Saturday 7th June 1884 at five o'clock pm.

Licensee Frederick Hurrell reported his tricycle stolen on 10th May 1906.
Valued at £8 it was discovered in Hingham on the 15th May and conjuror Alfred Stanton, of no fixed abode was charged with the theft. He said he had taken the machine to use as a surety for a loan to pay for a train ticket to Lowestoft.
He was bailed in his own recognisances of £20 and two sureties of £10.
But should he find the bail he was to give the police 48 hours notice.


Not found 1929.

Certainly closed by 1938 - then a cycle & motorcycle sales & repair shop.
