    Great post :)

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    I'd never heard that before, I've lived nearby for most f my life - mind you the Bell was a bit too old and then a bit too grebo for my young self ;) I was a Vines man back in the day

    Do you have an idea how long the place had been abandoned (d*mn, bad english haha).
    It seems to be abandoned for such a long time... or better said: I looks like the upstairs part of this building has never been tidied of cleaned or cared for!

    nice report, love the deail info about the history!

    It's been abandoned since may bank holiday time, it was a family member of a close friend involved in the tragic incident, it's a shame, everyone used to go there even tho it was grotty it Has seen some awesome evenings, and bands
    It fell to totally the wrong kind of management in the end ......
    I'm glad to see it closed to be honest and I'd feel wrong derping it myself but it has been crying out or someone to take a look

    Thank you for that! I had no idea it had closed - hells bells, I loved that place in my younger days! Game of pool, a pint of snakebite and 20 menthols and I was set for the night! That's made me v sad that it's in such a state now :(
    Awesome pics though - sterling work!

    What a shame such a historic beautiful building has been left in that state. Fab interesting report, I enjoyed :)

    Following on from my thread on The Old Bell Hotel,Derby,People may be pleased to see that the place has been saved and is to be restored by a local businessman.He should be highly commended and it is heartening to see when so many listed buildings are left to rot or are otherwise destroyed.

    Please check out the link from the Derby Evening Telegraph as follows for the full story http://www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk/Ol...ail/story.html
    How come I always find the deep water, pigeon crap and rotten floor boardslol
