Bells Bar.

This was once called McBeth's Bar in 1912 until after WW1. Alexander McBeth the proprietor moved here from across the road, where he had a public house from as early as 1891.

Before WW2 George Smith was landlord here, after the war Duncan Smith ran the pub. The last occupier of the premises was a lady called Elizabeth Boyle, the pub was finally demolished in the way of redevelopment when the new motorway was built in the early 1970s.
