The double belled wedge tent is found in a number of medieval paintings and sketches. Henry the VIII’s camp drawing shows many of these tents in use and under erection. With a door in the center of the body of the tent, it offers usable floor space while taking up no extra area for guy lines. The tents are strong and able to withstand any weather thrown at them due to their triangular cross section. Add to this the fact that the double belled wedge needs only two vertical poles and one ridge pole and you have an easy tent to transport also.

TENTSMITHS constructs the double bells in a number of sizes. We have not been able to find any documented original dimensions but the paintings appear to show the same design in a number of different sizes.

We offer your choice of two door styles. The Henry VIII style is a thirty inch wide door, six feet tall with a half round peak. (As shown above on tent in foreground) The “French” door is our usual five inch overlap, ties inside and out, which can be tied open (Shown above).

Unless otherwise noted, Tentsmith tents are made out of 10 oz. white Sunforger – Flame resistant canvas.

All PRODUCTS ARE “CANVAS ONLY”. YOU WILL NEED POLES, ROPES, AND STAKES TO SET UP YOUR TENT, WHICH CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY.

MUD FLAPS are standard on all walls. The standard width on the mud flap is 10″. Some vendors have requested we remove the mud flaps so as to allow walls to be more easily put up or taken down without moving poles, because on square and rectangular marquees the perimeter poles do rest on the mud flap. Some customers go with the segmented mud flaps if they want the protection and convenience. We are happy to do this.

This flap is sewn on to the front of your Marquee, and hides a velcro strip that attaches to your awning and adds weatherproofing and wind resistance when your awning is attached.

if you will be attaching an awning, wind ropes, or finials, you will need a metal grommet (or 2) in the peak of your tent through which the pins can run

All doors on Our tents come with tie closures, but we can substitute loops and wooden toggle closures.

    This tent is fantastic. I’ve had my double bell wedge for ten years, and not only is it easy to set up, it’s also unbelievably resistant to wind and weather. It gets set up and stays up once a year for over a month, and I’ve never once worried that it might come down, even in 50+ mph winds. I can’t recommend it enough.
