Church Bay Mystery Bell?

Church Bay Mystery Bell?

Hi Wil


Just spent another beautiful week in Anglesey and visited Church Bay a couple of times.

On my second visited I noticed what looked like a broken bell on the beach at the top by the access ramp, very corroded but is it really a bell?

If so, whats the story? Does anyone know how it got there (if it is a bell of course). If its not a bell, can anyone identify it?

Simon

The Bell on Church Bay Beach
by: Anonymous

There was a ship wrecked there some years ago and to get rid of it it had to be cut up on the beach and taken up bit by bit. It's probably something left over from that.

There are pictures of it wrecked on the beach in the nearby Lobster Pot.

Bell mystery.
by: Drewy bach.

If a ship's bell, it would be made of brass and still shine too in all probability. Another idea, this could be the top of a ship or boats' cowel, the upright broad pipes seen on old ships structures with the 'bell' or trumpet piece facing forwards into the wind or slipstream to vent ship compartments below. If this is the case, it would be interesting to know what old ship or ship wreck, this item came from ! Ship's ventilation Cowel theory.
