Bell Foundary

Originally uploaded by kdt.

On the way back from Mont St Michel, we visited the last working bell foundary in France (for at least the last 200 years). Out tour guide spoke English and French really well – so the tour was conducted in both languages as we were the only group on the English language tour 🙂 It was fascinating to walk around a working factory, amongst the dirt. The photo is of a bell that was cast at the end of June, which they are slowly removing from the mould.
