Middleport Pottery

I have been waiting for the article I wrote about Middleport Pottery to be posted online. It has now been. It was the result of one of my few excursions outside London in the last nine months as I wanted to see what Re-Form had done to preserve Middleport Pottery, as it has been viewed as a potential model for what they might be able to do at the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. Credit where credit is due. The scheme at Middleport was led by English Heritage, which makes it the more baffling that Historic England has supported the crass commercial redevelopment of the Bell Foundry as a hotel and not Re-Form’s much better and more intelligent proposals.

The Inspector visited the day after I did and I hope drew the same conclusions.
