Hard times for The Bell
After passing hands many times over the past years, The Bell began to lose its lustre. A variety of factors stacked up against The Bell such as the smoking ban, and higher rents, rates, and taxes. However, during this time, tourism in Norfolk flourished and new businesses began popping up everywhere. Brisley C.E.V.A primary school received an outstanding Ofsted report in 2004 and The Bell was greatly missed when it closed in 2014.
