County Hall - Education

County Hall
County Hall - Education
Inscription

The home of Inner London's Education Service from 1922, ILEA succeeding the London School Board, 1870 - 1904, and the LCC, 1904 - 1965.

Site: County Hall (3 memorials)

SE1, Belvedere Road, County Hall

Designed as offices for London government, the building was opened in 1922 by King George V. We think it very likely that these plaques, on the east façade, were erected, and the frieze created, as the GLC moved out in 1986.

The frieze is low on the south façade on Westminster Bridge Road, on either side of the vehicular access to the hotel.

Before moving into these offices London County Hall was in a building between Cockspur Street and Carlton Terrace, on the site now, 2021, occupied by the British Council.
