Foundation Time

The Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers is one of several such honorable societies. Since its founding in 1346, the Company has had its headquarters at Armourers' Hall on Coleman Street and London Wall. A few structures in London survived the Great Fire of 1666, but the Hall was one among them.

The Location Story

However, the Hall was rebuilt totally in 1839 after it had been extended in 1795. The dome of the Livery Hall was built in 1872. Unfortunately, on December 29, 1940, a huge blitz on London damaged the surrounding area, but the Hall was spared. The twenty-second Livery Company in line is the Armourers' and Brasiers' Company. The company's motto is "We Are One."

Where The Knights Meet Together

In the Armourers' Hall, there is a gathering place for armourers. Armourers' Hall is the home of the Armourers & Brasiers' Company. In 1322, the Company was established as a guild for the fabrication of armour. The majority of the time, it's used for charitable purposes. It is possible to rent out the Hall, and tours can be scheduled.

As a result of its charitable activities, the Gauntlet Trust awards grants to small non-profit organizations that promote science education in schools and sponsors Materials Science instruction and research at the university level. An organization dedicated to advancing materials science in the UK is the Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers (WCAB). Charitable donations and networking are the means through which it does this The Armourers' Hall, a designated historic site and Grade II listed building, has been in the same place since 1346. The 700th anniversary of the company will be marked in 2022 with a variety of activities and charitable endeavours.

The Winner

As a livery company, the Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers, composed of armourers and brass smiths, assisted in establishing the Prize's foundation. The first award was given out in 1985. Foundational research in functional or structural materials is presented every two years (on even years) by the Royal Society Armourers & Brasiers' Company Award. If you're interested in learning more about a subject for practical reasons, you're doing "use-inspired basic research." The award includes a silver-gilt medal as well as a gift of £2,000 and is given on a bi-annual basis.
