Jeremy hasbeen employed by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry since 1966. He told the News aboutPrince Charles’s visit to see the ring of eight new bells which were cast at the foundryin February and March. Ranging in weight from 481 to 162 kgs the bells werepresented by several Livery companies as well as private individuals. Each bell isnamed after a senior member of the Royal family. The Vintner’s bell, named Elizabeth,is a tenor bell with a G sharp note. As many of you will have seen during the pageantthe bells were mounted on a special belfry on the leading barge. As the barge proceeded along the river the bells were rung and answered by other bell towers from the riverside. Eventually the bells will be hung in the tower of the parish Church of St James’Garlickhythe on Garlick Hill. Jeremy was delighted to meet Prince Charles who visited the foundry a few weeks ago to check on the progress of the new bells.
