London Plaques by Derek Sumeray
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


London's buildings are dotted with commemorative plaques. Many are the famous blue plaques, indicating where a famous person was born, lived, stayed, or if a significant event took place there, or an earlier use of the site. This book is a comprehensive gazetteer of all of London's plaques. Using Derek Sumeray's classic book as a basis, this thoroughly revised new edition arranges plaques alphabetically by area, providing a text that is linked to London's geography and, therefore, of greater use to a resident or visitor wanting to explore the famous people and events commemorated in that area.

Author Biography

Derek Sumeray retired early from a successful business career and took up photography, which led to a scheme to photograph every plaque in London. Since there was no guide to these plaques to help him, he wrote it himself.John Sheppard read history at Oxford before becoming a documentary film maker. He has forty World in Action films to his credit plus many one-offs. More recently he has devoted himself to writing and to campaigning. He maintains a database of London's buildings currently running to over 10,000 entries.
