Bell from Light Vessel LV.10. sells on eBay

LV 10 BELL 1

The bell from the Trinity House light vessel LV .10. complete with the original clapper and bell toggle/rope. The bell, 12” in diameter at the base and 11” tall, weighing in at around 12 kilos sold for £561-00 on the 3rd July. A fine piece of maritime heritage which has hopefully gone to a good home.

LV.10. was built by Philip & Son, Dartmouth, Devon and launched in 1951 serving initially on the Helwick station. In 1984 she was converted to an Automatic Light Vessel and saw further service on the Sandettie and Sunk stations. I think she is still in service but will have to check with Trinity House.
