"Conservation groups are calling for a proper heritage assessment before digging up Arnold Circus, the centrepiece of the listed Boundary Estate which is the world’s first municipal housing scheme built in the 1890s." #towerhamlets #savearnoldcircus https://t.co/94UA5gKf4k— Stephen Moran (@stephen_j_moran) October 31, 2020
'The historic Arnold Circus was not the place for “expensive and ill-conceived enhancements”, an area celebrated worldwide for its unique design and architecture, the trust pointed out. The simplicity of the Arnold Circus design “should not be tampered with”.

How wartime ‘ripple’ led to 600 deaths in east London school is revealed by BBC investigators https://t.co/O3I1ngmMFa— Spitalfields Life (@thegentleauthor) September 24, 2020
"The little-known tragedy of a wartime bomb that never exploded—yet had a “ripple affect” causing 600 deaths in an east London school—is being uncovered by BBC investigators." (East London Advertiser)
Families were sheltering in the school building after being evacuated from their homes due to an unexploded bomb on the first day of the London blitz. But the school took a direct hit the following day causing far more casualties than were announced at the time.
