The Bell

Picture source: Colin Price

The Bell was situated on Carter Hill.  This pub was demolished in 1889. A post office was built on the site and in 1899 a plaque put in the building to commemorate the fact that one Richard Quiney wrote a letter to William Shakespeare from here, dated the 25th October 1598. This is the only known letter addressed to Shakespeare in existence and the original is preserved in the museum at his birthplace, Stratford upon Avon. The Grange St Pauls Hotel now occupies the site (see photo below).
