A History of The Coachmakers

The History of the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers and Coach Harness Makers, by Honorary Archivist David Burgess-Wise, is available online here. The printed version has sold out and Liverymen can now purchase an exclusive, digital page-turning, version for £10.00.

The book explores how many leading lights from the motoring and aviation fields had joined the Coachmakers in the 20th century. Using the previous histories as a foundation for telling the tale of the early years, whose records had been lost in the 1940 bombing, David has expanded the story, by digging through bound volumes of motoring and aviation magazines to unearth nuggets of Coachmaker history.
