A bit about the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, London.
Established in the Whitechapel area since 1570, this company has produced some of the world’s most famous bells including Big Ben, the original Liberty Bell and the Peal of Bells which rang on the Herald Barge for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee River Pageant. They are also made one of our bells here in Pilton where I live.
Sadly, the foundry closed in May 2017, after nearly 450 years of bell making and 250 years at its Whitechapel site, with the final bell cast given to the Museum of London along with other artefacts used in the manufacturing process.
The latest I have heard is that it may cast bells again at some point and/or be a posh hotel. Time will tell.
