The Five Bells Brandon, Suffolk.
Brandon is a pleasant country town with an industrial past. The flint mines at Grimes Graves which provided flint from pre Roman times through to the flintlock muskets of the 18th Century are nearby, as is the USAAF base at RAF Lakenheath.
I can't find out whether the Parish church of St Peters has, or had, 5 bells but pubs named Bell something are frequently named for an ecclesiastical connection.

I drive through Brandon every year on my way to Swaffham and a small village nearby.

It's great to see these signs.
