"bell casting production demand is very limited at present."
And that isn't likely to change, is it? It doesn't take too much analysis to work out that the main customer of bell founders / hangers is the Church of England. It doesn't take much more analysis to see that the CofE is in decline.
It's quite simply the case that there was not enough work available to keep all the current bell founders / hangers occupied and regrettable as it is this was bound, sooner or later, to lead to somebody getting into difficulties.
Unless you have plans to reverse the decline of the CofE, I don't see this problem going away. A viable future is likely to involve diversifying into other branches of founding and / or engineering, or growth areas such as tourism.
