mandoleer Folklore: Odd pub names (412* d) RE: Folklore: Odd pub names 24 Mar 05

The Blue Bell at Barton (West Lancs) used to have a blue bell hanging with a similar legend, but with
This bell hangs well
And injures none
Refresh yourself, pay
And travel on.
One more not far from that, by the way, that I've never seen elsewhere, is the Running Horses. This is a canal pub, not far from the former Maghull racecourse, and by coincidence, it's in Bells Lane... Oh, and the Red Lion at Scarisbrick seems to have become the Blue Elephant, but I'm still trying to find out if it's become an Indian restaurant....
