On Monday 12th November 1832 the Wandering Piper arrived in Lynn and with permission of the Mayor, played in the streets for two days. He performed at the Freemason's Tavern on the Monday evening and at the Crown Tavern on the Tuesday evening. Apparently playing as the result of a wager, " he donated £2 15s 8d to the Lynn Dispensary and vouchers had been seen shewing upwards of £700 had been given to charitable institutions and destitute individuals. There were many contradictory remarks about the eccentric behaviour of the gentleman, the wise may smile, the benevolent must rejoice at the laborious task undertaken; a few months will, in all probability, clear up whatever mystery at present hangs over this benevolent individual".

Henry Barnes announced 16th October 1834 that he had taken the Inn and assured his customers of Good Beds, Choice Wines and Spirits and every other comfort.

The CORN EXCHANGE TAVERN is at this address by 1852.


( As it happens a Freemasons Lodge only met here during the years 1821 to 1825 )

Same as the COFFEE TAVERN described in 1888?
