The Dyers had buildings in Upper Thames Street which were burnt down in
the Great Fire, as was its replacement in 1681. The third (1730s) & fourth
(1760s) halls in Dowgate Hill both collapsed and the present hall on College
Street was built in 1842 by Charles Dyer. In 1856 an extension onto Dowgate
Hill was added by D A Corbett.
