The Whitechapel Bell Foundry

The campaign to save the Whitechapel Bell Foundry has gone quiet of late because it has been hard to maintain the momentum of the campaign through the longueurs of the planning process. But it is coming to a crunch as Tower Hamlets have to make a decision as to whether to allow a New York venture capitalist to convert a great and important historic site into a boutique hotel or whether, instead, the United Kingdom Building Preservation Trust should be allowed to take the property over and restore it to being, once again, a working foundry.

Do please watch the short film they have made which makes the case for its preservation very powerfully:-
