500 Years of History lives on in Westley Group Bells

An entry in the Guinness Book of Records lists the Whitechapel Bell Foundry as Britain’s oldest manufacturing company, having been established in 1570 (during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I) and being in continuous business since that date. In 1970, therefore, the Foundry celebrated its quatercentenary. That tradition now lives on in the safe hands of Westley Group Bells.
