If you want to save the Whitechapel Bell Foundry as a working foundry rather than as a boutique hotel, please go to the developer's public consultation this Friday (4-8) & Saturday (10-2) at the foundry and record your comment in writing!

Many years ago a friend worked for water company. One night in the pub said he walked under Oxford St in London. We all corrected him but he was right Said he walked under Oxford St via the main sewer . Not at all envious!

Streets of prefabs, a chapter of Hells Angels, and a glass of champagne at the National Gallery. What more could one hope for? Perhaps my weekly feature on will fill in the gaps
