A Date For The Bell Foundry Public Inquiry

February 29, 2020
by the gentle author


The Public Inquiry called by Secretary of State, Robert Jenrick, into the future of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry commences on Tuesday 5th May and runs until Friday 15th May, with eight days of hearings. It is being held at Tower Hamlets Town Hall, Mulberry Place, 5 Clove Crescent, E14 2BG, and is open to the public up to a capacity of two hundred.

Please put these dates in your diary now because we need as many people as possible to attend to demonstrate the massive strength of public feeling that exists to save the bell foundry.

    A Whitechapel Bell Factory tourist experience will bring £££millions to the city and be a legacy project that will last for hundreds of years…. There must be a way to preserve the history, culture and unique experience this extraordinary business has created….

    I’ll be there as much as possible to show my support.

    So glad that the Public Inquiry is happening, and let’s just hope and pray that the outcome is what we all want…

    Ironic that this government grant a Public Inquiry after all the planning damage caused in Spitalfields and overall in London by Boris Johnson as Mayor.

    I will support the Whitechapel Bell foundry. I use to live a few doors away from the foundary. I now live in birmingham. One month ago. I spent 200 pounds on my train journey to visit the bell foundary. It has rich preserved history.
