Worlington Bellhistorical closure era: mid 20th century
closed between 1958 and 1979
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. larger map
