Stowupland Millers' Arms
CAMRA Ipswich & East Suffolk branch.last updated 28/10/2015
Short lived beer house located close to windmill.
** Speculation: ** the building in our photograph and at the map location is claimed by the Listed Building Register to be the original Retreat. However, the historical records show that this was closer to the current Retreat building and was demolished in 1969. So it seems possible that, assuming this building was a pub at some time as the register claims, it might have been the Millers' Arms.
If you have any information that might confirm or refute this suggestion, please let us know.
