Anglian of Newgate Street, Beccles were motorcycle makers from 1903 to 1912.

1903 Anglian made their debut at the Crystal Palace show. Primitive in design, the machine was powered by a vertically mounted De Dion, Sarolea or MMC 2.75hp engine.

1905 As well as the De Dion, a lighter machine was produced - with a 2.5hp JAP engine. This also had a twin-chain primary drive to give two speeds. At some point in the following years a forecar model was also listed.

1910-1912 Only models fitted with 2.75hp De Dion or JAP engines were available.

The company did not list any models after 1912.
