We take a look at the last 400 years at a popular Ipswich inn which was a pub, a nightclub and a Christian centre.
St Margaret’s Plain in Ipswich, featured in a recent Days Gone By.
One of the buildings that had been there for centuries saw huge changes in the mid 1960s.
The Running Buck Inn dates back to at least 1689, it was also known as the Buck and the Roe Buck.
Work started in 1965 to build a large log cabin style building behind the original inn, opening with bars and a restaurant early in 1966.

In 1984 it became Cane’s and Cindy’s nightclub until suddenly closing in June 1991.
The building was purchased by the neighbouring Bethesda Baptist Church. The timber building was demolished in 1994 and the original inn converted to “The Key”, a Christian-based centre, which was opened in January 1999 by singer and broadcaster Paul Jones.
