The Ipswich Journal*** on Dec 23 1801 reports:
"The Swan, Northgate St, Bury St Edmunds - Sale of Mr Jervis COE's complete & capital plant of brewing on 31.12.1801 - He retires from the said inn on consequence of not agreeing to sell common brewers beer."
Correct location confirmed on the 1885 OS map at the Bury Record Office.
The Listed Buildings Register claims that number 11 Northgate Street was the Swan, but the OS map contradicts this.
