Hawstead Metcalfe Armshistorical era: 21st century
Lawshall Rd, IP29 5NR
This was a friendly two room traditional pub set in six acres of grounds.
It was converted into a cycle shop and café in 2014, having suffered a serious fire from which the business never recovered, a couple of years earlier.
The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map

The Metcalfe family once lived locally and seems to be significant property owners from about 1811 to 1888.
