Duke of Sussex is another of Ipswich’s long lost pubs

If the Duke of Sussex was your local in 1974, you could be pictured in our gallery here.
We have delved into our archives once again – this time unearthing these pictures from a night at the former Ipswich pub which once stood in Cumberland Street.
These photos were taken in 1974 and show the landlord and landlady, regulars and visitors all enjoying a night at the local.
The pub stood at the corner of Ann Street, and there had been a beerhouse on the site from around 1851. The pub was previously known as the Duke of Cumberland and the Cumberland Arms. By 1860 the name had changed to the Duke of Sussex.
The building closed as a pub in 1975 and was converted to residential use to join the long list of lost pubs in Ipswich.
Were you a regular punter at the pub in the 1970s? Do you know who any of the people are in these pictures from our archives?
