This old 1888 map [courtesy Old Maps.co.uk} shows Dead Lane and St Giles Lane BUT also a pub [The Bell] What happened to the pub?

The road to the right of the church, skirting the graveyard, is Bell Drive. Edited by member, 7th Dec 2019 9:25 pm

The Bell Inn, believed to be the oldest inn in Warwickshire, was closed in 1923.

Have you ever noticed Anne, where there has always been a village church there is a village pub not too far away. Also these days the pubs are full and the church might be empty - collection boxes 'zilch'. The village folk have the option, that one or the other. No wonder we live in a wicked world. Roll eyes

Correct me if I am wrong but I heard the story that one of the long time vicars at St Giles church is buried directly under the entrance door. I was christened at the church 75 years ago and nothing has changed since then. I understand the church is about 800 years old...Just to change the subject, how did Bedlam Lane down the road from there get its name.Keep up the good work this is a fantastic site.
