Now a private residence, the pub was built late in the 18th century.
It reportedly stood "opposite the vicarage"; our photo and map location show what we think was the pub - if you can confirm or refute this, please let us know.
The 1904 Woodbridge licensing records show that the Brickmakers Arms' beerhouse license was issued in 1863. License renewal was refused in 1909.
An earlier Brickmakers Arms's beerhouse was located nearby at Drybridge Hill corner.
