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.

The Paviors' Company ranks fifty-sixth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is God Can Raise to Abraham Children of Stone.

In 1989, HMS Argyll, a Royal Navy warship sponsored by the Company was launched by Lady (Wendy) Levene.[1]
