When I was in the city last week I remembered that we have some wooden benches outside the Royal Exchange.
The benches are inscribed ‘Donated by The Worshipful Company of Lightmongers’.
When I came across them a while ago they were in a poor state and in urgent need of a rub down and re-varnish. I am pleased, as you can see from the photos, to report that they are looking much better.
I and several longer serving members would like to know the origin of these. So far I have been unable to find out how long they have been there and what the story behind them is.
I would love to know how they got there, if you can help.
