The Franschhoek Dutch Reformed Church (Moederkerk) has a bell that hangs at the gate of the church in a horseshoe type construction. There are no inscriptions on the bell. The custodian of the church told us that the bell probably dates from 1855 when the original ship bell of 1853 was transferred to the near wine estate La Cabrière. We have not yet been able to trace this bell or the estate.
