Historic Interest

Was the Waggon Market Tavern in 1922 & earlier. Also listed at 2 Risbygate St. A report in the Ipswich Journal** in Aug 1810 states that : An announcement of the death on the 6th August, 1810, aged 68, Mr Robert Shadow, of Horseydown, near London, brother of Mr Shadow, of the Waggon Inn, in Bury. A report in the Ipswich Journal*** on 06 Mar in 1811 states that : "Auction of property by Order of the Assignees re Mr Henry LEECH, Bankrupt, Merchant & Maltster; Lot 7: The Waggon Inn Public House, situate in Risbygate-street, Bury, comprising 2 parlours, bar-room, 2 kitchens, 4 chambers, 2 garrets, extensive cellars & store-houses, with granary & brewhouse adjoining, together with a large yard, containing 4 stables, malt,coal & wood-houses, pig-sties, small garden & a pair of broad gates, with a right of way into St Andrews-street, Bury. The above inn is in good repair & occupied by respectable tenants (not named) at will, who are carrying on considerable trade & where the consumption of malt has for many years been equal, if not greater, than any other house in the town." A report in the Ipswich Journal*** on 04 Sep in 1850 states that : "To be let, Free, The Waggon Inn, One of the best houses in the County, situate in Risbygate-street, adjoining the Cattle Market, with large out-buildings, Piggeries, large Yard, Stabling for 50 horses. Any person possessing between £800 & £1000 will find this one of the best situations for trade in Bury. Possession may be had at Michaelmas, as the present tenant's lease expires at that time. Applications to be made to Mr W. LOCKE, 96, Risbygate-street, Bury or the present tenant, Mr REEVE, who will give any information that may be required as to the reason for his retiring from this Inn." A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** in 1857 (Oct-27) when Robert Reeve was landlord states: "George Moore was charged with stealing a towel from the Waggon & attempting to sell it to Mr Ellis at the Coach & Hoses. He was sentenced to 14 days jail & to be well whipped." Photographs of this pub and more historical information about it can be found at
