A special visitor

On Thursday, 25th August we were delighted to receive a special visit from “across the pond”!

Carl Scott Zimmerman is an accomplished Carillonneur and the pre-eminent authority on American bells and bellfoundries. His website, which can be found at TowerBells.org, contains an enormous amount of information and lists carillons throughout the world.

Mr. Zimmerman has been corresponding with our own Archivist George Dawson for several decades. However, the visit to the bellfoundry a couple of weeks ago was the first time the two had ever met in person. We are delighted that Carl was able to see all that the bellfoundry has to offer, including the casting of two bells.

An auspicious occasion for all involved!
