Kirkwall Burgh School Bell

...from the wreck of the 'Emmanuel'.

A Tom Kent picture.

I assume this is the bell that is on display in the dark box outside the former main entrance to the Grammar School?

The bell is fairly un-noticeable in its present location, due to the tinted perspex. It should be brought indoors and made a feature within the school, perhaps in the foyer.

We removed this bell from behind the perspex last year and at the moment it resides in the headmasters office! The jannies, KGS.

Must have been a big bell to require all the jannies
