Time and Tide Bell

Permanent installation

By Marcus Vergette

Located on the Thames side of the river Wall opposite the Lighthouse

Brainchild of Sculptor Marcus Vergette, this eye-catching 3 metre double bell is the third in a planned series of 12 bells at widespread locations throughout the UK.

Based on a new and highly original design developed by Marcus and Dr Neil McLachlan, the bell is rung by the river to mark each high tide, and uniquely, from just one strike, the bell sounds different notes one after the other to form a rich melody.
