Region: Nottinghamshire UK

A view of the Chinese bell tower (pagoda) in Nottingham Arboretum. It was designed in 1857 by Marriott Ogle Tarbotton as a war memorial and built in 1862. The bell was looted by British troops from a temple in Canton during the Anglo-Chinese war (Opium War) of 1857-61. Two of the cannon were captured at Sebastopol in 1854-55, during the Crimean war, the other 2 are replicas. In 1956 the pagoda was partly demolished and the bell was moved to the regimental museum in Preston.
