This is an 8 mile long Musical Instrument commissioned by Sustrans for the Inverness to Santiago Pilgrimage Route for Cyclists and Walkers. It was conceived designed and constructed by Sculptor Barry Cooper and Musician/Artist Laurence Parnell.

The instrument consists of 9 stone Waymarkers on the Wells to Glastonbury section in Somerset. Inside carved niches in each stone is a bronze bell supported on a bronze scissor arch tuned to individual notes to make a complete musical instrument over the 8 mile journey from the mote around the Bishops Palace in Wells to the base of Glastonbury Tor.

Each bell can be made to ring by a small pebble.
