Eyemouth is a small town and civil parish in Berwickshire, in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland. It is 3 km east of the main north-south A1 road and 13 km north of Berwick-upon-Tweed. It has a population of about 3,400 people.

The town's name comes from its location at the mouth of the Eye Water.  A fishing port, Eyemouth holds a yearly Herring Queen Festival. Notable buildings in the town include Gunsgreen House and a cemetery watch-house built to stand guard against the Resurrectionists (body snatchers). Many of the features of a traditional fishing village are preserved in the narrow streets and 'vennels', giving shelter from the sea and well-suited to the smuggling tradition of old.

The bell will form part of Eyemouth Art Trail. It is in the making - encouraging people to look and through looking discover the beauty and mysteries of the town.

Brixham bell delivered from the foundry

Horribly delayed from the proposed installation in July 2020, the bell has finally been delivered to Marcus Vergette's studio from the foundry. Can it still be installed this year? Watch this space.

The bell will have an entirely new design of structure supporting it - illustrated by Marcus Vergette.

Breakwater Beach

The bell will be located at the rocky, Eastern end of the shingle beach, which itself is just beyond the large breakwater that creates Brixham marina - all a few minutes walk from the centre of Brixham. There is a lively cafe on the beach. There is a brief video on the beach here.
