The Gloucester Journal reported on 10th March 1906 that a local policeman, P.S. Hopkins, had visited the Ship Inn just before Christmas in 1905 and that the landlady had told him that there was no beer or drink of any kind in the house. Furthermore P.S. Hopkins said that he had not seen a customer at the pub for three months.
The Ship Inn was referred to to the Compensation Authority and presumably closed later in 1906. The pub was located at the bottom of Stock Lane (Jumpers Lane) on the banks of the Berkeley Pill.
The building, which dates back to 1760, is now a private house called the Old Ship Inn.
