Coachmakers' Hall

Building

The Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers received their charter in 1677 and initially did not have a hall of their own.

Following the Great Fire the Worshipful Company of Scriveners built their hall in Noble Street and used it themselves until 1703 when they sold it to the Coachmakers, who rebuilt it in 1843 and in 1870. Finally it was destoyed by bombs in WW2.

Alamy have an image of the 1851 interior, looking more like a disused church. British History Online have a pre-1929 photo of another part of the hall but we cannot find an image of the exterior.
