"The  Bell Inn was also first opened as a beershop around the middle of the 19th century and occupied just one small cottage at the western end of its present premises.

The Bell also went on to obtain a full licence and, during the twentieth century, extended into two adjoining cottages"

"The first licensee of the Tempest Arms was farmer Samuel Auckland who opened up a beershop around 1840 and brewed his own beer on the premises.

Originally known as ‘The Board’, the beerhouse eventually became a licensed inn called ‘The Brewers Arms’.

However, in 1888, it was renamed ‘The Tempest Arms’ in deference to the Tempest family, owners of the Coleby Estate"

"18th Century Well Houses

At the south end of Blind Lane stone wellhouses cover the two old parish wells, a reminder of a time when water had to be drawn up in a bucket and carried home.

In 1896 the older of the two wells (flat top) was closed because of its dangerous condition.

In the same year a pump was attached to the other well (coned top). In 1905 this well was deepened and it remained in continuous use until piped water was laid to standpipes in the village in 1932"
