Thorpe-le-Soken: Former King Edward VII public house
Thorpe-le-Soken: Former King Edward VII public house
Occasionally the building of a railway station led directly to the provision of a tavern to take advantage of the commercial potential of the movements of people and goods generated by this then new mode of transport. In this case, although the nearby railway station was built in 1866, the public house was not constructed until 1901, and was named the King Edward VII to commemorate his coronation year.

The pub has been closed for many years, and is in a dilapidated condition, but the ornamental ironwork verandah and balconies on the front elevation evidently still survive.

This view was taken from the closed security gates on the site boundary.
