The first section of Happisburgh's Time and Tide Bell has been delivered to its temporary home at the village school.
One of only 12 permanent installations around the British coastline and the only one in East Anglia, the bell will stay at the school until it is moved to the beach next year.
The bell was delivered by its creator and the brainchild of the project, Marcus Vergette.
Once it's installed on the beach, the rise of the water at high tide will move the clapper to strike the bell. Played by the movement of the waves, the bell will create a varying, gentle musical pattern.
Kate Merji, headteacher at Happisburgh Primary and Early Years School, said: 'The children are looking forward to seeing the bell in action on the beach.'
