Trinity Time and Tide Bell

by Marcus Vergette

Back to Main Time and Tide Bell Page
Trinity Buoy Wharf, Greenwich, London, near to the Meridian Line. One of this bellís potential meanings is as a time-piece or time-marker, both in the way the bell is rung by the movement of the sea at high tide daily, and as a long time marker of sea levels and present shoreline. This site is where lighthouse keepers were trained and navigation buoys were made. The bell was installed on Sept 19, 2010.

Each bell has its own inscription chosen by that community.
Trinity Wharf Bell Inscription
What is the song in the wave, if not
that all living is meeting?
nothing given up, or held for good:
bats in the lantern light,
cormorants scouring the tide.
