Loughborough Bell Foundry is saved

I was very delighted to hear on the Today programme that the Heritage Lottery Fund has given a big grant to save Taylor’s, the other historically very important Bell foundry besides Whitechapel based in Loughborough.

I have known for a long time that the HLF had chosen to concentrate its funding and resources on Loughborough rather than Whitechapel.

I just hope that it helps raise the importance of Bell foundries, their cultural significance, and will enhance determination to save Whitechapel rather than undermine it at this critical juncture in the campaign.
