Old Maps of Meare

Historic Maps of Meare and the local area.

The Ring O'Bells was run by my grandparents, Ernest and Mabel Turner until the middle 1940s. I believe your earlier memory of it being called the Grapevine is wrong. I remember seeing the Grapevine, a much more modern building 500 yards along the Glastonbury road on the right, standing at right angles to the road.

Edna Baker married Carl Dewdney on 24th Dec 1935 at St Mary's church. Edna's father was James Baker who was a local carpenter. I would love to hear from anyone who has any photographs or can remember Edna or Carl.
