This piece (1/5) is the first of five originally recorded for the Radio Hereford and Worcestershire BBC local radio station. The series explores the use of bells in the UK and begins at Taylor’s Bell Foundry, Loughborough, the largest in the World, where a bell is about to be cast.

Robert Bracegirdle, the Museum’s Curator, takes us through the history and design of bells which, at Taylor’s, range from 16 tonnes to a small Greek hand bell.
