The Covid Bell

I’m so pleased to see that the Gentle Author has written about Grayson Perry’s Covid Bell on display in the Summer Exhibition as a reminder that the Whitechapel Bell Foundry could – and indeed still could – have been turned into a working foundry if only Historic England had supported the proposal to keep it as a Foundry instead of turning into a boutique hotel: something which now looks unlikely to happen, so Historic England have effectively substantially contributed to its current dereliction.

It would be wonderful if a bell could be installed in the new public garden being created immediately next door to the London Hospital as a public memorial. Or, a possible alternative. Could one go into the new Tower Hamlets Town Hall due to open this autumn ?
