Originally intended to be linked to the buildings on either side by an “arcaded screen,” the campanile is often used pictorially to represent Trinity College. The belfry is a cylindrical chamber encircled by engaged Corinthian columns and pierced by tall round-headed openings with cast-iron traceried grilles. The four figures at the base of the belfry, sculpted by Thomas Kirk (1781-1845), represent Divinity (seen holding a cross), Science, Medicine and Law.
