Notes NOTES: The Merchant Taylors' Hall dates from the late 14th century and its medieval crypt and great kitchen survive, although all but the shell was destroyed in the Great Fire and was subsequently rebuilt. Further developments of the building occurred in the late 17th century and the 19th century. The Hall later sustained severe damage during World War II and it was reconstructed in 1959 on the 14th century foundations. In 1927 its garden was reduced in size when the cloisters attached to the hall were enclosed by Sir Herbert Baker.
