Subject: Six Bells

Re the origin of the name Six Bells.This old pit village grew up around the Six Bells pub and was named after it, as were several other places, e.g Cross Keys and Holly Bush. See Roy Palmer's "The Folklore of (old) Monmouthshire" published by Logaston Press 1998.
Incidentally, the old railway signal box near Six Bells Halt had the name Cwmnantygroes which was easily seen from Griffin Street, Six Bells.
I used to live in Arrail Street and when we ordered groceries from Mrs. Blacker's greengrocer's shop in Six Bells during the War (WW2),she used to mark it for Mrs. Jenkins "down The Fields" - obviously a memory from before the pits were sunk.
