Southwark Blue Plaque Nominees 2015

Admin (27 August, 2015)

Which of the borough's historical treasures will get your vote?


A soldier who could throw a bomb 75 yards, a championship golfer, the country’s first purpose-built solarium, and the ‘University of the East End’ – which will get your vote for this year’s Southwark Blue Plaque?

There are over 50 Southwark Blue Plaques proudly celebrating the borough’s rich history since the News and Southwark Heritage started the scheme with Southwark Council back in 2003, with historic family firm F.A. Albin and Sons winning the award last year.

The nominations this year are:

George A Roberts 

Sir Henry Cotton

The Solarium, Grange Road

The Blackfriars Settlement
