Site: Festival of Britain - Churchill Gardens (1 memorial)

SW1, Churchill Gardens Road, Shelley House

From Municipal Dreams: "The first four blocks completed towards the eastern edge of the Estate – Chaucer, Coleridge, Keats and Shelley Houses – in 1950 won Festival of Britain Architectural Awards." This made us think there would be a plaque on each of the 4 buildings but we searched and found only one, on Shelley House. Municipal Dreams is an excellent source for information about the architecture of this estate.
