Whitechapel Bell Foundry (101)

In case you think I have entirely given up on the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, I was pleased to discover a post about the sound recordings of bells cast by the Foundry held by the London Metropolitan Archive (Both Sides Now – The Curious Case Of The Whitechapel Bells – London’s Sound Heritage (wordpress.com)). Robert Jenrick may think that no-one now cares about the fact that he gave accidental permission to the redevelopment of the Bell Foundry as a hotel (two hotels have opened in the vicinity during the last year, one immediately opposite), but I hope that it will remain a blot on his escutcheon and forever associated with this government’s lack of care for the historic environment and general air of total incompetence.
