Long Description:
The original bell, the oldest in Barbados, carries the inscription "God Bless King William 1696". It fell from the belfry in 1881 and was badly cracked but a benefactor donated a new bell. However, considering its historic value the old one was retained as a monument, which predates the American "Liberty Bell" by 56 years.
