Foundry to be demolished!!

..and yes it’s true!

The Hackney council approved plans to pull down the building which accommodates the only pub that I loved when I lived in London. Foundry’s place will take a 18-storey hotel in a cylinder shape…crap!

Foundry wasn’t only a pub. It was an art gallery and a pub. Outside of Foundry, Banksy had made a huge 6 meter rat with a knife and fork over which the building’s owners have constructed a protective wooden covering. Thank god, the council specified its intention for the safe removal and retention of the artwork.
