Taylors of Loughborough

The Taylor family had a profound influence on bellfounding worldwide through their rediscovery of true-harmonic bell design and tuning in the late 19th century. This section of the site brings together a history of the Taylor bellfounding family, written by Paul Taylor for a celebration dinner in 1960, and also an investigation I did into the acoustic characteristics of Taylor bells from 1786 to 2019.
