This item was found on the foreshore at Harlyn Bay recently. We are unsure as to what it is, it is made a soft metal not Brass,bronze or aluminium,possibility it could be pewter or other metal. It was considered to be a bell of some sort, heavily encrusted with concretion having been in salt laden sand for some considerable time. It is a flattened dome shape and contained a clapper. The Cross emblazoned on it would suggest it has a religious connotation.
