The pub, called the William Adams, is due to open at some point in February.

It is being built next to the town’s Wilkinson store on the High Street.

It had been due to open last July but that was pushed back to November and then February after the discovery of two bodies and a hidden crypt on the building site.

The William Adams is a £1.5m investment by J D Wetherspoon and the company has said it will bring 45 jobs.

It is named after a 19th century bathing attendant credited with saving hundreds of lives.

The photographs were taken by Jonathan Howes.

They come as the J D Wetherspoon’s Troll Cart pub in Great Yarmouth prepares to open its doors on December 12 following a major refit and creation of a 22-bed hotel.
