Cambridge Tram ShedIn the late 1980s Earl Soham Brewery created a pub out of a derelict furniture repository in Cambridge, the building had been built to service the trams of a company that went bust before it had even started trading so ESB called the pub The Tram Depot.  Our first visit was last weekend for the Love Bout after party and drank a pint of Everards' Tiger in memory of track racing at Saffron Lane, Leicester.

The Earl Soham Falcon was certainly open in the early 1990s as I remember having playgroup meetings there when my two big ones were little and I was chairman!  Certainly made the evening go by much quicker and discussions more amicable.

All the best, Edith

The Earl Soham FalconNot sure when the Earl Soham Falcon (once upon a time a Lacon brewery pub) closed but this 1980s? advertising card gives the landlords as Paul and Lavina Algar (should that be Lavinia?).  In 2008 the pub sign decorated the back wall of what is now a private house and the post for the pub sign lives outside the Earl Soham brewery a little up the road.

Malcolm and Lucie Walker ran Tastebuds in Earl Soham Malcolm and Lucie Walkerat the beginning of the decade and Malcolm would mildly irritate the keys of an electric piano, primarily on Sunday evenings in the Framlingham Station.  They were clearly attracted by a caravan lifestyle living for a while in a Winnebago lookalike at Kettleburgh and now on a barge in France.  Their blog is called Tillers and Tastebuds.

Sign on what was the car parkOn Saturday Mr and Mrs Michael Fogg-Elliot opened their home for a coffee morning to raise funds for the Earl Soham village hall.  Their house used to be the Falcon pub which, when discussed, was thought to have closed around ten years ago.  The old pub signWe knew that post for the pub sign now lives outside Earl Soham Brewery and that the front garden used to be the car park but we were surprised to find there were petrol pumps to one side ... don't know why but we were, surprised.

Earl Soham Lodge

Earl Soham Lodge is gorgeous!  It actually is a moated (farm?)house, that standing water goes all the way round it's not just a medieval fish farm, and we're told some of the cellar is Roman.  When we arrived around 11 this morning for Paddy and Scott's Coffee Morning Scott had already served 160 coffees (Paddy was on a sabbatical) and Scott reckoned the event would raise some £500-600 for the village hall.  As with all similar events one of the great pleasures is to blether with your neighbours and by the way this nipper was supping it might have been hot chocolate.
