Whitechapel Bell Foundry (77)

As a way of recording and recollecting what has been lost, I am re-posting the blog I wrote on 25 February 2017, the first and only time I ever saw the inside of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry when it was still in operation. It was an extraordinary survival, still preserving what were essentially late medieval systems of production.

I don’t know anywhere which was equivalently powerful or demonstrated so clearly such traditional systems of hand-made production.

  1. Charles, this is desperately sad. These ‘Conservatives’ have no regard for the value of cultural institutions or this country’s heritage. You have helped fight a brilliant campaign with merit and right on your side. Any chance of judicially reviewing Jenrick?
