Whitechapel Foundry: end of an era

Interesting read on the closing of the foundry that cast the Miami bells.  The bells depicted above are in the belfry of St Michael’s Church and are more than 250 years old.  They have endured war, earthquakes and hurricanes.  Where will bells go to be repaired now?
