VISIT TO WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF MERCHANT ADVENTURERS IN YORK

On the 4th November 2022, The Master Cutler, Mistress and Clerk were guests of the Worshipful Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York. This was a wonderful opportunity to reaffirm our strong friendship with a fellow Yorkshire Company and to hear a wise and humorous address from His Grace, the Archbishop of York.

The Merchant Adventurers were founded in 1356 for mainly religious purposes but the Mercer’s of York formed a new charter in 1430 in order to set up a trading association.  The Hall itself was built between 1357 and 1361.

On the 5th November we were treated to an informative tour of the City of York and met with the Lord Mayor of York.
