Can you help with history of pub?

COULD I ask any readers of the Free Press whether they have any history of the Highbury Barn in Canhams Road, Great Cornard.

After recently taking on the job of returning the local pub back to its former glory I am trying to produce a brief history of the 18th century inn.

As a former resident of Great Cornard I went to live in South Africa before being offered the Highbury barn and returned eager to develop the pub and beer garden.

My friends and acquaintances that I’ve met around the world on my travels are keen to visit Suffolk and a history of the pub would give them a great insight.

I can scan any photos or documents of interest in the small cyber cafe I’ve developed at the pub or information can be emailed to or have a chat to me during the pub hours of noon until 11.30pm via phone 01787 829287 or visiting.

Thanks in advance
