News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Sailing ship 'Earl Of Eglinton'

Laid down (I presume) in 1854 she was wrecked at St Margarets in 1860. Her bell was recovered and housed at Buckland School which had been newly built and stood on a frame outside having been purchased from the salvage by the church. The school closed in 1968 and now the bell is in St Andrews Church on its stand.
