Our Small Back Foundry!

Although it rarely appears in photographs we do have a small foundry behind the main foundry. The small foundry is in use weekly with castings of the many small bells and fittings that are in constant demand. Handbells, longcase clock bells and town crier type bells are regularly cast here, together with the numerous small iron components we use regularly. These include ceiling bosses, crown staples, bearing housings, clapper balls, pulleys etc. all poured from hand ladles, and melted in the small furnace shown in the photograph.
