18th century handmade Aldbourne bells. The bells would originally have been mounted on a leather block to be used on the neck of a cart horse or load pulling ox. Bells produced at Aldbourne have a distinct style of their own for which they have become renowned. The foundry itself can be seen as a ‘technical leader’ in the art of the bell founding method. #Creative #Wiltshire #metalwork
