  • My father, Frank Bowman, ran the pub from about 1960 until the mid-70s. When we moved there it was called the Eight Bells but he renamed it the Eight Belles soon after we arrived after he was told that a member of (I think, but my memory is vague as I was a schoolboy and not greatly interested) the Leon family had eight daughters who were known as the ‘Eight Belles of Bletchley’. He had a new sign painted with eight Edwardian ladies on it. The Leon family did, of course, own Bletchley Park before WW2.
