The Pickerel Inn, Stowmarket

I think if you look back in history the name of the pub came from a fishing industry that use to thrive in the Gipping back in the 1800's.

The pub was also used at the end of the harvest, as far back at 1813, for the farm workers to spend their "frolic money".

I have no personnel knowledge of this pub as I'm sitting here in BC Canada. There is a book, Life and Traditions in Suffolk and North East Essex, by Norman Smedley, 1976 ( ISBN 0 460 04221 I )

Due to copyright I can not print what is says about this pub, but the pub is mentioned on page 86 of this book.
