Demolished and replaced by a modern development.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the White Hart's license was issued in 1823.
Note: Henry Edwards (not necessarily one person) is recorded in various censuses at Cumberland St., Church St. and Warren Hill in the same business.
None of the censuses identify a pub.
