The present hall built in 1961, stands on the site of a medieval hall destroyed in the Great Fire of London, rebuilt in 1681 only to be destroyed again by bombing in 1940.
The making of girdles (or belts) was an important craft industry in medieval times and the Girdlers Company received its 'Letters Patent' from Edward III in 1327. By the 17th century, changing fashions put the industry into terminal decline, the Company is now active though the Girdlers' Company Charitable Trust which makes donations and grants in the areas of Education, Welfare, Medicine and Health, Heritage, Environment, Humanities and Christian Religion (HEHR).
