Plaque

Bedford 1972

Inscription

{Beneath a crown:}
B 1972

We believe that the crown and the 'B' are indicative of the Bedford Estates and that the date commemorates the royal silver wedding as well as the construction of this mews terrace.

Site: Bedford 1972 (1 memorial)

WC1, Chenies Street

At the southern end of this terrace there is another plaque with similarities, on the Bloomsbury/Ridgmount Petrol Station. That one has the crown, the 'B', the date 2012 but is white/cream with the symbols inside a circle which is itself inside a square.
