Located at TL703834. Situated at bridge crossing old drainage canal, now dried out itself by the building of bigger cut-off channel to protect fens in 1960's. Building demolished, very little evidence remains. Tried to buy beer here as a 14 year old but was refused! Guess at closure around 1960, photos exist showing it to be a Bullards house.

A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Apr-24 in 1900 states that at a public auction held at the Bull Hotel the High Bridge free public house was submitted for public competion and was knocked down to the Star Brewery Co.
