Building The Bell Rock Lighthouse
Shallcross, David C.
Australian Mathematics Teacher, v61 n2 p36-40 Mar 2005
Ever since the first mariners sailed off the east coast of Scotland the Bell Rock has claimed many vessels and countless lives. Also known as the Inch Cape Rocks they lie 18 km off the coast at Arbroath. Located near the mouth of the Firth of Forth and its important shipping ports these dangerous rocks cover an area some 440 m long and 90 m wide. Submerged for all but up to four hours a day it is said that a floating bell was moored at the rocks as early as the sixteen century in an effort to warn unwary mariners.
