The Aberdyfi Bell

Aberdyfi (installed July 2011) is referred to in ancient Gaelic legend and song as the kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod, a kingdom now submerged beneath Cardigan Bay. The origin of the legend is lost in the mists of time, but perhaps refers to ice melt at the end of the last ice age, the inundation of the land, and the formation of the bay. It is said that its bells can be heard ringing beneath the water. At low tide sometimes the tree stumps of ancient forests are revealed, radio carbon dating suggests that these trees died around 3500 BC. We installed a stainless steel grille in the jetty floor so you can stand above the bell as it becomes submerged and then revealed by the tide

Above the awesome tide
I will rejoice

Each Bell has its own inscription. This was chosen by the local community for the Aberdyfi Bell
