    I am using this method of contacting you as there seems to be no other way. While you do good work in preservation I feel that you only see a part of the problem of problem of keeping our heritage. My particular gripe is the destruction done to grade 11 listed houses particularly in the Bow conservation area.

    During the eighties I was one of the directors of the Bow Building Company, yes we did get a letter from the BBC, and carried out repairs and improvements to dozens of properties across Bow and Mile End. I am a City and Guilds qualified bricklayer having served an apprenticeship in the sixties when there were apprenticeships.

    I think it would be good if you did some articles on how listed Victorian facades are being destroyed by builders, many from Eastern Europe,who have no knowledge of how the building were put together in the first place. In 1986 I took down and rebuilt the facade of ” Corner Cottage” on the corner of Bunsen Street and Kenilworth Road in Bow. This is how it should be done. The whole area is full of appalling examples of badly bonded brickwork, pointing that looks as if it had been thrown at the wall and bricks covered in paint and soot. It is the little things that make up the bigger picture as well as water ways and schools. It is something worth looking at.
