The Whitechapel Bell Foundry (107)

The attached article published online by Apollo spells out the current hope for the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. It will require the various heritage agencies, including Tower Hamlets and Historic England, to come together in support of a plan to reinstate Bell making in the Whitechapel Bell Foundry. It would enable not just the historic fabric of the building to be preserved, but its original use as well, which was what gave it its extraordinary character as a piece of living history, more exciting, I thought, than equivalents like Ironbridge and Styal Mill.

    The link isn’t working. As a textile technologist who used to take groups of textile students to visit Styal Mill I’m struggling to think how any living history exhibit could be more exciting than Styal Mill!
