This is no doubt a tavern token. The Bull Inn existed for many years. Bull baiting took place in the mead at the back of this inn, and not many years ago the ring and stump of the post were dug up in the field. The site of the inn is now occupied by a large private house, but the lane at the back is still known as Bull Lane.
