The Worshipful Company of Paviors is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Paviors were formed at some point prior to 1276; they were responsible for the paving and maintenance of London's streets. It received a Royal Charter in 1672. The Company is no longer a trade association for, and a regulator of, London's road constructors, instead acting as a charitable institution; for example, it has sponsored a road making display at Amberley Working Museum.
