London Metropolitan Archives

An intrepid group of Tax Advisers and their guests recently visited the London Metropolitan Archives in Clerkenwell.

The London Metropolitan Archives is run by the City of London Corporation and is home to an amazing range of documents, images, maps, films and books about London, and the guided tour, specially organised for our Company members included time with one of the conservators, who had recently worked on Charters from the Worshipful Company of Tallow Chandlers (seen in the photograph here). Some Livery Companies store their records and archives at the London Metropolitan Archives building, where they can be professionally conserved.

Afterwards we had supper in The Peasant, which is highly recommended!
