Finding a new home for the Cannon Street Bell Tower


The Lymington Society has today launched a consultation exercise to find a new home for the Victorian bell tower or cupola from the Cannon Street School which was demolished several years ago in controversial circumstances after a long campaign by the Society to save this historic building.

Having failed to save the Cannon Street School the Society was however successful in saving the most iconic feature of the building – namely the ornate cupola or bell tower feature which the Society has kept in storage since then.

The Society would now welcome suggestions for a new home for this reminder of our Victorian past. Ideally it could be incorporated into a new building scheme and applications for possible sites from developers or architects would be welcomed.  Any suggestion should be with the agreement of the owners of the suggested site.

Suggestions can be made through the form below or by e-mail at
