Whitechapel Bell Foundry (2)

I have been searching the internet as to how last night’s planning meeting went.

Three for and three against. The chairman gave his casting vote in favour of the scheme. Thus is a long history, a history of continuous active use since the Middle Ages, a building which has made and created bells since the 1740s, abolished by a single vote through a bureaucratic system which has been warped and corroded in favour of redevelopment: another cappuccino bar; but a unique history of continuous industrial use will be lost.
