The Bell Inn (3) - sign, Martley Road, Lower Broadheath
The name reflects the close association that the church had with inns and taverns in the past and particularly in medieval times. Many religious establishments brewed church ales which were sold to increase income. The sound of the church bell was heard far and wide, particularly in the days before the noise of motor traffic etc. Frequently there would be a pub located very near to the church. Quite often the pub name includes a number such as The Five Bells, to reflect the number of bells present in the church.

The sign for this pub is on a post at the front.
