John Taylor Bellfoundry - Perfect Breaks
The Bellfoundry in Loughborough is home to historic bellfounders John Taylor and Company, and is a unique place with global architectural and historical significance.
Tours begin with a short talk introducing the Taylor's story. You will then enter the Victorian factory building to experience the Full Foundry Works. Explore the Victorian covered yard, where bells arrive for repair and depart for their new homes. You will also take in the joinery shop and learn how Taylor's craftsmen produce bell wheels, carillon claviers and other vital pieces of the bell installation. The tour also includes a visit to the magical tuning shop, where the iconic sound of a Taylor's bell is perfected. Visitors will have access to the casting hall viewing platform and a short video explaining the bellfounding process.
