Nice to see a pic of the Victory when it was a pub, Henry Lusher(Harry as he was known) was a
landlord there at one time, went on to be landlord of the Black Bear at
Wisbech, the Capain Vancouver, Gaywood, and the Woolpack Tennyson Ave,
a good old time publican, no trouble in his houses. Sadly no longer with us.

( One source gives the closure date as Thursday 7th July 1960 ) During the night of 16th November 1730, landlady Ann Wright was strangled by one George Smith, who had been let into the house by servant Mary Taylor. The latter was perceived to have betrayed her employer and was accused of Petty Treason and sentenced to death by burning. The murderer was sentenced to death by hanging. Both the punishments were carried out at the Tuesday Market Place on 25th March 1731.The Norwich Mercury reported that Smith was ` turned off ' as the fire was set to Mary Taylor, `whose cries were very dismal to the spectators'. Richard Johnson was paid £1/10/- for conducting the execution and two un-named assistants were paid 2/6d for tending the fire. The total cost of the event, including gibbet, faggots, 18 head porters, 10 constables and 12 javelin men, was £10/19/5d.. Given as the QUEENS HEAD RESTAURANT in 1890.Market day extension granted 1956.Closed 31.01.1960. ( as S&P records )The licence was surrendered and the property was sold to Dorothy Perkins Ltd.19½ barrels of beer sold in the final year of trading.The house was demolished and wrought iron arches that spanned from the building to another on the opposite side of the road were taken down.The arches were said by the Lord Mayor of the time to be unique and worthy of saving. It was reported later that the arches had `disappeared' ( One source gives the closure date as Thursday 7th July 1960 )
