Whitechapel Bell Foundry (2)

I am posting some photographs I took of the exterior of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry nearly exactly a year ago when I first heard that the United Kingdom Historic Building Preservation Trust was taking an interest in mounting a rescue of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, equivalent to what it has done so successfully at Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on- Trent. Now, the only hope is that Tower Hamlets refuses permission for a change of use and Bippy Seigal who owns the site might consider selling it on:-

    Wonderful photographs as ever. Such a tragic loss and to think that it might have been saved for a fraction of the sum squandered on the garden bridge. I peered through the gates at the time when the yard was being cleared out and seeing all the equipment and tools, ready to be taken away, almost brought tears to my eyes.
