The Big Bell Arrives Down Under!

The 5 ton bell cast for Canberra has safely arrived and has been hoisted aloft to join the other 56 bells in the National Carillon on Aspen Island. The photograph shows onlookers at the base of the tower before the bell was lifted.

Work on the major refurbishment of the carillon nears completion but has been halted in the present crisis – our bell hanger has been flown back to the UK and will return to finish the project once it is safe to do so.
