Painter Stainers’ Hall, 9 Little Trinity Ln, London EC4V 2AD

The earliest reference to the property is dated 1375, citing a building between Hoggen Lane and Trinity Lane, and it was this property, probably a Medieval timber framed building that was acquired in 1504 for £30 by John Browne and conveyed to a number of his brother Paynter-Stayners in 1532, and was first described as “Paynters Hall” in 1549. The Great Fire of London in 1666 destroyed most of the building. Re-building after the Great Fire was completed in 1670, followed by various improvements and additions in 1671-74. Early in the morning of 11 May 1941, after a night of fires all around the area, Painters’ Hall was again destroyed by fire. It seems apt that the Arms of the Painter-Stainers depict a phoenix, when twice in its history the Hall has been raised by fire only for a new Hall to rise again from the ashes. It re-opened on 8 June 1961.
