The Bell Inn was by the bridge over the Stroudwater Canal in Oil Mills Lane. The Bell was the last of a row of terraced cottages, and was demolished some time ago. Some of the terrace is still there. The landlord of the Bell Inn in 1903, William Brunsdon, had a coal wharf on Ebley Wharf. William had had a son called Arthur who was also a publican at the Anchor Inn at Ryeford.

The Bell Inn can be identified by the building with the white painted square to the left of the bridge. Image courtesy Phil Sampson
