Hi Jane, my name is Ross Browning and I lived in Northiam 1977 (age 0!) to 2003. Some of my relatives lived or still live (aunties, uncles, parents, grandparent)there so my contact with Northiam remains, I am also an active volunteer with the K&ESR steam railway that includes a station in Northiam situated at the 'bottom' of the village, close by the River Rother (closer when it floods!)and just inside the village and indeed East Sussex county boundary. Sadly the Six Bells at the 'top' of the village closed around the time I completed at the primary school, so 1988-1990 ish and following a very short time of inactivity underwent conversion and extension into a mews of houses called Six Bells Mews. The streetname 'Six Bells Mews' is the only reminder of the former Inn's name although the conversion was a little sympathetic to the pub's original architecture, externally. The small green with surrounding (private) crescent driveway remains with the grand oak tree upon it, exactly where I used to cross to and from the primary school each day for six years, thankfully escorted by Mrs B the Lollipop Lady!

My father (Peter Levett) grew up in Northiam. I belive that my grandfather, Albert Levett, at one time owned or operated the Six Bells, and also Commons Wood Farm nearby. I visited Northiam in 1990, and scattered my father's ashes at Commons Wood Farm. Can anyome tell me whether the Six Bells is still there?
