Do you remember the Blue Coat Boy pub in Ipswich?
Today we are looking back to a busy night out at the pub, at the Old Cattle Market, in 1975.
The historic inn’s unusual name came from a term for a scholar at a charity school.
Part of the Grade II building dates from the 17th century, together with extensions from later periods.
