Upminster has a wide selection of pubs past and present so we have taken a look at photos of some from down the years.

From the Crumpled Horn which opened as recently as 2000, to the Bell Inn which dates back to 1906, we have selected images of a range of establishments for readers to look at.

The Bell Inn replaced a premises which stood in the 17th century, possibly even earlier, according to Havering Libraries.

It was part of Sir James Esdaile's redevelopment of Upminster and Corbets Tey in the 19th century and at the time of this photo, it added, and the pub landlord was Matthew Bracey.

In autumn 1962, the Bell Inn closed and was demolished the following summer, Havering Libraries said.
