A Report of the Society’s Visit to Trinity House - 9 February 2015

A group of our members was lucky enough to visit Trinity House (at Tower Hill), London on 9 February and enjoy a very informative tour by Geoff Boyd. Trinity House is now celebrating its 500th anniversary, having been given a grant of the Royal Charter by Henry VIII in 1514.
