Recently this bell was brought into the CCHS History Room by the son of Fred Badger’s cattleman, Maurice Howman.  The bell was used to announce the start of the monthly cattle sale which was held at the back of the Noel Arms. Fred Badger’s herd of Friesian cattle was kept at the farm, now Badgers Field. We found some photos on COMMA and recorded Jamie Howman’s memories. We were really pleased to find the photo of James ‘Teapot’ Williams, holding the bell.
