This image shows a stone plaque on the ground outside St Mary Somerset Tower, London, England. The plaque says: "From 1370 onwards, during the reign of Edward III, the site of St. Mary Somerset was the meeting place of the Weavers of Brabant for the hiring of serving Men." St. Mary Somerset was a church in the City of London first recorded in the twelfth century. Destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666, it was one of the 51 churches rebuilt by the office of Sir Christopher Wren. The tower is located in Upper Thames Street, the body of the church being demolished in 1871. Edward III (13 November 1312 – 21 June 1377) was King of England from 1st February 1327 until his death; he is noted for his military success and for restoring royal authority after the disastrous reign of his father, Edward II.
