The Periwinkle was the ship whose mission it was to take the Joseph Bell to Salamandastron. It was sailed by shrews and the leader of the voyage was Captain Ash. Among the crew were Joseph the Bellmaker and his daughter Mariel.

It was attacked by searats in the vessel Darkqueen, the majority of the crew were killed, and Joseph and Mariel were taken back to Terramort Isle as slaves. The Periwinkle was then renamed Crabclaw by the vermin and a rat named Skullgor was made captain of the ship. However, the first day he sailed out in it, a storm blew him back into the cove at Terramort and the ship was holed and the rudder was broken. Skullgor was murdered by Gabool the Wild for this, and Grimtooth was made the new captain of the Crabclaw.

After the defeat of Gabool, it was returned to Joseph's command, who restored it to its original name, the Periwinkle.

On the return to Mossflower Woods the Periwinkle's wood was used to build a bell tower at Redwall Abbey for the Joseph Bell.
