The 1838 OS map shows this pub as being at the junction with Elm Lane. The Post Office Directory of 1891 lists Kerry Lambert as landlord of the White Elm, whereas Kelly's Directory of 1892 lists the same landlord at the "New Elm Inn". The original pub was demolished when the road was widened, presumably round about that time.
Closure date from Orwell licensing records.
