The Aldeburgh Scallop by mave

The Aldeburgh Scallop

The iconic scallop shell on the beach between Aldeburgh and Thorpeness is a four-meter high steel sculpture on the shingle beach with the sea in the distance.  Around the top are the words "I hear the voices which will not be drowned". Unveiled in 2003 as a striking tribute to Benjamin Britten – one of the twentieth-century’s most important composers who spent much of his life in Aldeburgh and nearby Snape; the Scallop was conceived by Suffolk-born artist Maggi Hambling, and made by Aldeburgh craftsmen Sam and Dennis Pegg.
