Opening of Stilton Memorial Hall

No details and no date for this one which was taken on the occasion of the opening of Stilton Memorial Hall which was dedicated to “the men who fell from Stilton, Folksworth, Morbourne, Washingley, Denton and Caldecot”.

Probably shot in the late 1950s, if not the early 1960s, an interesting shot if only by virtue of the absent elaborate signage that usually highlights the Bell ….. just a modest little sign at this time !

Two images of the Bell at Stilton from the early part of the 1900s and showing a sign indicating that the inn was supplied in these days by Huntingdon based brewery “Marshall Brothers”.

The desolate road disappearing into the distance was the Great North Road, albeit a little quiter than today’s A1M replacement that passes a few hundred yards behind the Inn.The Bell, Stilton
