The White Lion, 42-44 High Street, Hadleigh
The White Lion, 42-44 High Street, Hadleigh
Grade II* Listed building with a 16th or 17th century core and 18th century front. A former Commercial Inn & Posting House closing in the late 1980s and converted in 1997-8 into a number of flats. In 1825 the auction details describes the White Lion as '...with stables, coach house, outbuildings, yards, garden, and spacious Bowling Green...' Records show the bowling green opening in 1754 so the inn must pre-date this. The green was physically separated from the White Lion in 1973 when Magdalen Road was constructed. The Bowling Club purchased the green and clubhouse from the owners of the White Lion, Tolly Cobbold, in 1990. First recorded Innkeeper is Robert Beales in 1781. From 1865 to 1888 it is described as 'commercial inn & posting house & inland revenue office'. Parish records show the 'Petty Sessions held here every 4th Thursday (1844)'. The rear of the building was damaged by fire in 2011.
