Memorial

Frederick Craufurd Goodenough London House

Bust: Frederick Craufurd Goodenough

Inscription

Goodenough
{Inscribed on stones under the bust:}
Frederick Craufurd Goodenough, founder, 1930

In a niche over the original central entrance (now mainly disused in favour of the north entrance).

Site: London House (5 memorials)

WC1, Mecklenburgh Square

These memorials are all inside what is normally a private quadrangle but we managed to gain access on the weekend of the 2007 Open Squares Event.

The 70th anniversary plaque can be seen from outside, peering through the gate, on the left. The armillary sphere is in the quadrangle, on the north side, directly in line with the gate. The bust is on the south façade, the clock in the north west corner, the Latin text on the east façade.

Our picture of the building, taken from the Goodenough College website, is of one of the Queen's visits.
