Now a private residence. Built late 18th century.

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.

A report in the Ipswich Journal** on Oct-23 in 1875 when Jacob Button was the landlord of Brickmaker's Arms states that:

Button appealed against an earlier conviction for serving beer during prohibited hours. The case was upheld.

An earlier Brickmakers Arms's beerhouse was located nearby at Drybridge Hill corner.
