The Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, England has cast some of the world’s most famous bells. Their impressive portfolio includes the bells at Big Ben, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and the bells at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
The foundry closed last year, but one of its final creations will soon find a home at UE.
The Interfaith Peace Bell weighs a whopping three-hundred twenty-two pounds. The words “yearn for peace” are inscribed on one side of the bell. The words “work for peace” appear on the other.
