The Rudhall foundry flourished in Gloucester from the 1680's until it was
taken over by Whitechapel, I think around 1825. Thomas Rudhall cast bells
there from about 1760 to 1783.

The foundry made good use of the Severn and other waterways to distribute
their bells; hence their wide range from Shropshire to Somerset and
Wiltshire. There's a Thomas Rudhall tenor at Warminster, and the contract
is written out in the churchwardens' accounts.
