This is GEORGE BELL HOUSE

Review of 4 Canon Lane
Reviewed 26 May 2016

It was difficult to find George Bell House because the Cathedral owners have decided to excise the memory of Bishop George Bell by reason of some trumped up or badly managed allegations against a man who cannot answer from the grave. It is now called simply 4 Canon Lane. This should be reversed.

That aside, our room was large, comfortable, had superb views of both the cathedral and towards the Bishops Palace Gardens, was well equipped. All very good.

Breakfast on a sunny day, with the doors open to the garden, was a wonderful start to the day, with a perfectly cooked full English breakfast served by a delightful waitress.

LETTER SUBMISSION [NOT PUBLISHED – JULY 30 2020]

 

170461775.jpg

Dear Chichester Observer Editor

 

First, the bad news (‘Closure surely not justified / Dismayed by closure proposal’, Observer Letters, June 25): Chichester Cathedral Enterprises has closed its Cloisters Cafe – “aka Bishop Bell Tea Rooms” – and made redundancies.

 

Second, the good news: 4 Canon Lane has been restored back to its original name of George Bell House [Please note: this is subject to confirmation by Cathedral Enterprises]

 

But is George Bell House – another ‘jewel in the crown’ of this city – now threatened with closure?

 

 

Yours sincerely
