Scope and content

The building that was The Bell Inn is now (in 2018) the Village Hall. In these pictures you will see it behind the railings and next to a shop on its western side called Robinson which sold meat and general stores. On its eastern side was a bakers shop called Wenman's and the picture of Wenman's was taken in 1897. Beyond Wenman's bakery was one little cottage with along with the bakery was pulled down to make way for the War Memorial. The Bell Inn was bought for the Women's Institute and the inside made into the hall pretty much as it is today. When the WI could no longer afford the upkeep of the building and bring it up to modern standards it became the Village Hall. The little pathway at the back of the hall is known by old-time Bamptonians as 'Back of The Bell' but is now usually called Bell Lane, but it gets the name from the Inn that was once in the Market Square.
