Have you got any plumbing pictures? Remember plumbing is not just to do with water pipes. Indeed in 1365 it was decreed in our ordinances that working a clove of lead for gutters, or for roofs of houses, he shall only take one halfpenny; and for working a clove for furnaces, tappetroghes, belfreys, and conduit- pipes, one penny.
At the Court meeting in July Robert Mason (Director of Sol Air Environmental Service), Elise Maynard (Owner of Elise Maynard & Associates LLP), David Robinson (Rtd Consultant to The International Power Utilities) and Jonathan Waggott (Marketing Manager of New Business Creation) were clothed in the Livery.
