Whitechapel Bell Foundry (59)

I have been given permission to post the evidence submitted to the Inquiry by Sir Jeremy Dixon. I asked him if he would allow me to because it states the case so elegantly and succinctly by someone who attended lectures by John Summerson at the Architectural Association in the late 1950s. It is not just a matter of the buildings, important though they are, but more the survival and development of craft skills.

Once it is gone it is gone.

    Arise Sir Jeremy it says it all so succinctly and so clearly and so dispassionately one can sense the underlying feeling but so beautifully controlled. Unanswerable.
