Southwark Council

Group   From 1965

The London Borough of Southwark was created as an amalgamation of the Metropolitan Boroughs of Southwark, Camberwell and Bermondsey.
Southwark council annually invites proposals for new plaques from which a short list of nominations is produced. The winners are voted for by 'The People'.  Whatever you think of that idea we hope you approve, as we do, the variety of plaque styles used by Southwark.   Looking back Southwark probably regret it and would have preferred a 'house style' but we enjoy the diversity.

Londonist brought Southwark's historical maps to our attention. Irresistible to mapophiles.
