Swans


The tradition of Swans on the Moat at The Bishop’s Palace goes back to 1870’s when one of Bishop Hervey’s daughters first taught the swans to ring a bell at the Gatehouse for food. You can see the bell just beneath the window on the left of the Gatehouse, with a rope hanging down for the swans to pull.

New generations of swans learn to ring the bell from their parents.
