Oddfellows Arms, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

 

Picture source: Darkstar


 
The Oddfellows Arms was situated at 44 College Street. This pub was previously known as The Old Angel and is now in residential use.
 
The Old Angel was situated at 44 College Street. I was born next door to this pub in 1948. We lived at Nos 45 & 46 (part of 46 was once my dadís grocerís shop but that closed in about 1951). Like everywhere else in Bury at the time, this was a Greene King pub and we were literally round the corner from the brewery. Our house was rented from Greene King. The Old Angel landlords were Mr & Mrs Russell. We moved out of Bury St Edmunds in November 1957 and Iím not sure when the pub closed down. The pub cellars went under No 45. When our floor collapsed and had to be mended, I remember staring down into the cellar and the barrels.
