Do you know the legend behind the name of the Wildman Pub?

Names of our oldest pubs can often tell a story about the town or village in which they stand and that is the case with the Wildman in Sproughton.
The name of the Bramford Road pub derives from a local legend about a hermit who lived in nearby woods.
The pub was built in the 16th century and is still part of the community today.
A large restaurant area dominates the interior, while it has traditional pub games and a beer garden.
Here we look back to 1974 with these nostalgic pictures.
