Worshipful Company of Carmen St Dunstan's Heritage Trust

The Worshipful Company of Carmen St Dunstan Heritage Trust (Registered Charity No. 1174950) is the Company’s other charitable arm, and owns the key facility to enhance and accelerate Carmen’s future benevolence - the Old School at St Dunstan in the West, off Fleet Street.

The Trust on 13 October 2017 signed and exchanged contracts with St Dunstan in the West, on a 125 year extendable lease of the Old School by the Church. The Trust is restoring, refurbishing and equipping the premises to provide a Gallery and Museum and educational workspace, and to further its philanthropic objects, enabling members to meet, organise, and support Company and Trusts.

There are five trustees, all appointed by the Court. The trustees meet monthly. Officers and advisors have been appointed to develop the premises, liaising with planners, conservationists, archaeologists and designers.

The Old School, Fleet Street

The Old School will be the Carmen’s new home, with meeting room, museum, archive, learning centre, offices and educational facilities.

It will help City-associated and London school children, undergraduates, post-graduates and research students, with transport educational initiatives, events, support, and career advice. 

The Old School will enable Carman lectures, workshops, seminars and workshops.

The Museum will work with vehicle collectors, other museums, schools and colleges, to encourage and enhance transport excellence and achievement. 

The Old School will enhance transport and logistics, and the occupation of carmen, for the public benefit.
