The casting of the first two bells

Thursday November 17th 2016.  The video was taken on an iphone5 from the viewing gallery at the foundry.

 

A bell foundry in action.

The images in the gallery are from raw film footage taken by camera operator Callum Macdonald (Dip Creek Productions) and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of our HLF project. The film forms part of the documentation of our project and will be directed by Blake Byles.

 

 

Our new ring of eight cast to the classic Taylor profile of the late 1920s early 1930s

Not change ringing yet but certainly some sounds from our new bells. The key is G, as expected, and the rounds are performed by Andrew Wilby (Director of Taylors) bells 1,2,3 Girdar (the tuner) bells 4 and 5 and Andrew Slade bells 6,7 and 8. The audio and pictures were taken by Liz Foster on an iPhone 5.
