For Sale by Auction 3rd August 1848 upon the orders of the Executors of the late John Perry of Watlington.
Described as a recently built, substantial Dwelling House, now used as a beerhouse and known by the name of the Railway Tavern and under lease for which three years would be unexpired at 11th October 1848.


It was reported in the Lynn Advertiser of 7th September 1900 that landlord of the Railway Tavern, William Carter had gone out at just after four o' clock on Sunday morning to gather mushrooms.
Seeing something on the railway line he had approached what later turned out to be the body of platelayer Alfred Cammick.
Carter touched the body and said `Halloa' but there was no response.

Much shocked he at once advised the porter at the station
but did not return to the body.

Mr. Cammick had last been seen at about ten o'clock the previous night, having left the White Hart at Magdalen Bridge shortly before.

5 trains had passed through after 10 o'clock.
Mr Cammick had died from severe head injuries and had been dragged for some distance.
The coroner returned an open verdict.
