The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

Worlington Bell

Worlington Bell

Closed between 1958 and 1979

The Street

grid reference TL 691 736

On an old postcard the pub is referred to as "not halfs" house.

The pub appears on the 1958 OS maps but not 1979, so presumably closed some time between.

Charles PHILLIPS of the Bell, Worlington, made an application for a one hour extension on 21 Jan 1885, in the occasion of the navvies' supper.Bury & Norfolk Post & Suffolk Herald, January 13th 1885**

The pub is shown (along with the Chequers, now the Golden Boar) on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. interactive map
