Whitechapel Bell Foundry (6)

Well, well, the hearing of the planning application for the development of the Bell Foundry which was due to take place on 30th. July in a fortnight’s time has been postponed. Let’s hope this is good news: that Tower Hamlets has realised that a catastrophe has been due to take place and the historic fabric of the Foundry changed beyond recognition. Now, there is at least an opportunity for some negotiation to take place whereby ownership of the Bell Foundry is sold or transferred to United Kingdom Historic Building Preservation Trust and it becomes a proper working foundry once again, retaining the skills, as well as the fabric of the building, which would otherwise be lost.
