Mystery surrounds the future of a town centre pub six months after it was sold.
The Lord Kelvin on Old Market Street, King's Lynn was listed for auction in September.
But the property was sold to an as-yet undisclosed buyer days before it was due to come under the hammer.
The boarded-up pub stands next to Lynn Museum and at the entrance to the town's bus station.
The auctioneer's catalogue said: 'The Lord Kelvin is situated in the heart of King's Lynn town centre, adjacent to the bus station and in close proximity to the Vancouver Shopping Centre, Sainsbury's and associated multi-storey car parks.

'The A148 inner ring road is within 100m of the property. The property comprises a semi-detached three-storey traditional brick-built pub and is in need of improvement.'
It was named after the physicist William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin (1824–1907), who developed the absolute temperature scale named after him. A sign featuring his portrait still hangs outside the pub.
