Trinity Buoy Wharf (2)

There is a relevance to what Eric Reynolds has done and achieved at Trinity Buoy Wharf over the last twenty years to the issues surrounding the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. What Reynolds recognised is that London cannot, and should not, rely solely on an economy of cappuccinos and international tourism: it should retain some element of the grit of the old riverside industries, of shipbuilding and of manufacturing and trade skills. He has achieved this by encouraging a culture of small-scale industrial entrepreneurialism. There is a lesson in this for us all, as Rupert Murray’s film showed.
