History dig at the Bull

THE discovery of two names and a date on a block of wood has inspired the owner of The Olde Bull Inn, Barton Mills, to look into its history.

During renovations at the 450- year-old inn, a ‘time block’ was found dated March 1938 and bearing the names B Parsons from Beck Row and a H Holmes from Newmarket.

Owners Cheryl and Sonia Hickman and Wayne Starling want to find out who these two people were. Cheryl has also been piecing together a history folder, with the help of local historian Charlie Peachey, and wants to hear from anyone has pictures, stories or memorabilia from bygone years or stories about the inn.
