   First mention: "le Carpenters Halle," 1575 (Ct. H.W. II, 692).
   The gardens of the Carpenters on the northern boundary of Drapers' Gardens are mentioned 35 H. VIII. 1543 (L. and P. H. VIII. XVIII. Pt. I, p. 528).

This hall was taken down 1876, for the formation of Throgmorton Avenue and the present building erected from the designs of Mr. W. W. Pocock.
