Also listed at The Mount. The Mount ran roughly from what's now the east end of Handford Rd. through to the junction of Elm St. and Black Horse Lane.
Listed in the Borough Police licensed premises register 1903-1923, so evidently closed after 1923.
An advert in the Ipswich Journal** on Feb-17 in 1855 states that :
"Advert: Beerhouse for sale on the corner of Elm Street and Curriers Arms Lane consisting of a brick built and tiled dwelling. The House is licensed for the sale of beer and known as St Edmunds Head. Let upon a lease to Edward Greene at a rental of £23 per annum. Also a comfortable cottage adjoining lately in the occupation of Mr Roberts. The small triangular piece of land in front of the beerhouse is included in the sale."
