Six Bells Inn, Walsham le Willows

Six Bells Inn, Walsham le Willows
Walsham le Willows is a village in the Mid Suffolk district, 7km east of Ixworth; it is roughly equi-distant from Bury St. Edmunds, Diss, Thetford and Stowmarket. The village retains sixty-two pre-1700 timber-framed houses that were all part of the property of the lord of the manor. Queen Elizabeth I had granted Walsham-le-Willows to Nicholas Bacon, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, in 1559.

The Six Bells stands on the corner of Summer Road and Church Street, opposite St. Mary's church. Although a former house on this site (known as Fullers from around 1476 when John and Margaret Fuller lived there) was used to bake bread and brew ale (the staple medieval diet) it first became a public house in 1844 with William Day as the beer-seller.

The present building was said to be ‘newly built’ in 1523 and occupied by William Vincent. His son Stephen died in 1549 leaving his son John his mercers shop and candlemaking equipment. The house, at this time, was jettied along two sides (evidence of which can be seen inside) with shop windows. A later Stephen Vincent had a grocers shop here. His wife Elizabeth spun and wove flax and hemp here and, after Stephen’s death, married Samuel Canham from Crownland Hall. It was first called the Six Bells (after the bells in the church tower) in the 1861 census. In the 15th century John Ringbell lived here.
