Wall of Guilds

When the Guildhall was refurbished, it was felt important to recognise the role of the Guilds in the life of the City. A wall on the first floor of the Guildhall now has the coat of arms of each York Guild on display, along with a resume of their history.

The Master, Immediate Past Master and Master Elect attended the “unveiling” of the Wall of Guilds performed by the Lord Mayor, Cllr Chris Cullwick.

As a Past Master of the Guild of Building, the Lord Mayor is well-versed in the history of the Guilds in the City.
