Restoring Britain’s Last Bell Foundry
John Taylor & Co of Loughborough has been casting bells in the town since it relocated there in 1839 when, on winning a contract to cast a new heavy peal of eight bells for the church, it was a requirement that the bells should be cast within the parish. Prior to this the Taylor family had been bell founding in St Neots, Oxford, and Buckland Brewer.
Completion is due in the first half of 2024, and we look forward to welcoming tour groups and individuals to Britain’s last bell foundry for a unique and fascinating day out once we’re fully open again.
