In 2017 the historic Whitechapel Foundry was acquired and the use of these Grade 2* buildings for the making of bells, such as Big Ben, the Liberty Bell and the Bow Bells, ceased. Despite the historic listing the original equipment has now been stripped out in anticipation of the buildings being converted to a commercial use such as a boutique hotel or similar.

As the new owner commences a public consultation process, which would seek to secure a change of use, this document sets out a different future for the building which would see the continuation of a viable Foundry with the resultant employment, skills retention, life and vitality.
