Place the bacon in a large, deep frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Pour off the bacon dripping, and place the drained bacon pieces in a slow cooker.
Stir the tomatoes, clams with 3/4 of their liquid, potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, parsley, salt, pepper, thyme and bay leaf into the slow cooker, cover and set the cooker on Low. Cook until the vegetables are tender and the flavours are well blended, 8 to 10 hours.
