Founders of the World's Finest Bells

New Bells for Vernet-les-Bains, Southern France

The new ring of ten bells for Vernet-les-Bains is being cast at present. The bells will be hung in a new galvanised steel bell frame with all new ringing fittings in the tower of Vernet's Anglican Church of St George. The scheme is the brainchild of Jeff Ladd who is seen in the photograph, with Taylor's Mary Barrass, "feeding" the newly cast tenor bell he has given in memory of his wife Catherine.

For the Enthusiast

Taylor Bell Foundry has probably cast more large bells than any other bell foundry in the history of bell founding. Unlike some other English Bell Founders, who contracted out the casting of large bells whilst putting their name on them, all the bell we list have been cast in Taylor's own foundry.
