Enjoy the melodic tones of the York Harbor Buoy Bell. Standing guard with the infamous Nubble Light, in York Maine, this bell has protected thousands of sailors from their demise. The Lighthouse on top of a Crag and the Bell at the end of a clump of ledges have been recorded in history as being in “every way admirable” (Samuel Adams Drake, The Pine Tree Coast, 1891). Let this bell’s Haunting Sounds, Magic Memories take you to York Harbor and the craggy Maine Coast.
Each North Country Wind Bell is based on Jim (founder) and his family’s interpretation of the gong and bell buoys in Maine. Because of the wide variance in their tones, their groupings have resulted in single, double and triple-toned buoy bells.
Every North Country Wind Bell is shaped from quality steel which is over 60% recycled! All steel is a “living finish” and will patina over time, but will play for many years to come. All of North Country’s bells are powder coated with a durable outdoor weathering finish. These characteristics make it ideal for North Country Wind Bells, which are designed to hang outdoors year-round, and will not twist, tangle or break.
Quality materials, fine workmanship and family pride ensure that these rugged bells from North Country Wind Bells will endure for many years to come. Even hung far from the ocean, their response to a gentle breeze carries pleasant reminders of ocean swells and the constant vigil sounded by coastal and harbor bells.
