  • The Bell Inn is a former coaching inn built from traditional yellow Cotswold stone with the old coach entrance visible at the side. Inside are old settles, open Victorian style fireplaces, wooden floors and an old grandfather clock. The inn is located in the town centre not too far away from the old village stocks. The stocks served as a public form of punishment with those locked in them subjected to the weather throughout the day and night. Consequently, it was commonplace for people kept in the stocks over several days to die from heat exhaustion or hypothermia. The Bell Inn exhibits ghostly manifestations including one man who died in the stocks in the mid-18th century. Witnesses have seen him as a phantom at the old coach entrance and near a fireplace inside the pub.
