Uniquely, this bell is mounted beneath a working pier
Installed early in October 2019, this bell now has a new wave-catcher, made from carved oak.
This bell has an opening cut in the dock above, to allow close observation of the mechanism. It is normally covered by a grille.
Close inspection of the bell is best done at low tide; watch out - the steps, usually underwater, are extremely slippery....
The chemistry of the Dyfi estuary means that the bell has turned this beautiful shade of blue. Notice the seaweed, resulting from the tidal flow and relatively fresh water in the Dyfi.
