Bournville Carillon

The Carillon at Bournville is a tower at the school opposite the green, and it has a clock face on it. Some days, especially in the summer, a sweet sound of bells can be heard over the air - this is the carillon playing!

A carillon is an instrument composed of bells that are played in a series to produce a melody. It was erected in 1906 and has 48 bells.
