Plumber’s Apprentice graces London station

Plumber

Bringing the world of building-services engineering firmly into the public gaze is this 7-foot tall bronze sculpture of the Plumber’s Apprentice by Martin Jennings at London’s Cannon Street Station. It was unveiled by HRH The Duke of Gloucester to mark the 400th anniversary of the Worshipful Company of Plumbers receiving its Royal Charter from King James I in 1611.

Cannon Street Station was the site of the Worshipful Company’s livery hall until 1863, when it was compulsorily purchased to make way for the expansion of the station. Network Rail gave permission for the installation of the statue as part of the redevelopment of Cannon Street Station.

The statue signifies the industry’s long association with London and the company’s ongoing commitment to training young plumbers. The work also represents the important role played by all the professional trades in the development of the city.
