#190 The Bell, Brierley Hill, West Midlands : 1996 to 2015

Today you get a two-for-one bonus! As outlined in the previous entry (#189), we rarely stop at the bottom of Delph Locks and there are two pubs there. So, I thought I'd publish them together!
This was at lunchtime on Monday 27th May 1996 and I believe that we went in and had our lunch here, but I don't really remember much about it. The pub was managed by Holt, Plant & Deakin which meant little to me until I looked it up while researching this entry!

As I was looking through some of my early digital photos I came across this from the afternoon of Tuesday 27th March 2012.
Obviously it had undergone a complete refurbishment, but it was good to see it was still open! 

Fast forward to the evening of Friday 12th June 2015.
Now styled as The Bell Inn on the Delph, it had undergone a thorough exterior transformation over the passing 19 years. I have no idea who runs/owns/manages it now. Again, we didn't go inside as we spent the whole evening in the Bull & Bladder.
