The bell foundry at Villedieu-les-Poêles in Normandy

The bell foundry at Villedieu-les-Poêles was opened in 1865 and is still in production today. The eight bells in the photo were made for the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and were put on public display before being installed in 2013. You can visit the workshop in Villedieu for a guided tour in either French, English or German.
