The Nederduits Gereformeerde Kerk in Velddrif has a very tall brick tower in which hangs a bell of fair dimensions and clearly well made. It is disarming that a bell of such dimensions does not offer us an indication about its founder. The only decorations are four very small moulding wires just below the shoulder. The bell is used as an hour bell that was installed simultaneously with the tower clock. Since the makers of tower clocks usually order bells from a third party, there rarely is a reference to the founders of the bell. Surprisingly, also the clock maker has not found it necessary to inform us about his identity.
