For Whom The Bell Tolls...


A unique institution in Bath, the Bell Inn on Walcot Street, was in danger of being lost to the community when it was put up for sale earlier this year. But in order to save this well-loved venue, a local cooperative scheme was set up, with the help of Alex Pyatt and Ben Jones, to purchase the property and the business.

More than 530 customers and staff – including Peter Gabriel and Robert Plant – raised over £700,000 in a community buy-out scheme which means that the Bell Inn will live on.
