Blue Bell, High Street

Former location of Blue Bell, High Street. (c) googlemaps.

The Blue Bell was a large pub on the corner of High Street and Turner Street in the 1800s.  It dwarfed the neighbouring Wheat Sheaf - today's English Lounge (formerly Bensons and Hogshead) - as it used to jut out as a triangular shaped pub rather than the tapered building which now houses the Salimar take away [1].

  1. It was supposed to have had a licence in 1443, that's old!
