The Bluebell Inn, Helpston
The Bluebell Inn, Helpston
The Bluebell Inn on Woodgate was built in the 17th. century. The village blacksmith worked from a forge at the rear of the pub. The Northamptonshire "peasant poet" John Clare (1793-1864), who was born in Helpston, was once employed at The Bluebell Inn. His cottage, which is now operated as a museum and visitor centre by the John Clare Trust, is located next to the pub.
Following the closure of The Exeter Arms on Church Lane in around 2012, The Bluebell Inn is now the village's sole remaining pub. When this photograph was taken, the pub had recently reopened after undergoing refurbishment.
