St. Mary's Guildhall
Mercers Company Coat of Arms
The Mercers' Room is located in the
Guildhall's Gatehouse (built 1340-42).
In 1590 the room was leased by the
Mercers Company to be used as their meeting hall.
The Mercers Company in Coventry had a membership
merchants and traders.

I wish I could say I have a photo
of the actual room. I don't.
I took this one of the mural in 2012
on a Heritage Open Day and came across it the other day.
I recall deleting room shots because they were poor.
Ironically, I used to work in St Mary's Hall
years ago. Why didn't I take a loads of shots then :).
