On This Day in Trinity House History – 24 May

1665

The Elder Brethren decide on a better class of tipple 

Trinity House Court Minute:

“The Court finding that sometimes the Claret provided for the meeting did not prove so good as was expected, the Wardens were desired to provide a tierce or two of such Claret as might be approved of.”

It is worth noting that on no account is red wine allowed in the Court Room today, for fear of soling the second largest single-loom rug in the nation! (The largest being in Windsor Castle)
