Inscription

This plaque commemorates the opening by Her Majesty the Queen of the Silver Jubilee Walkway linking the South Bank of the Thames with the Cities of London and Westminster for the London celebrations of the Queens Silver Jubilee.
9th June 1977

Site: South Bank Lion & Jubilee walkway (2 memorials)

SE1, Westminster Bridge

We first noticed this lion way back in the 70s. Out for a walk along the river-front we noticed big cat footprints stencilled on the ground. These led us to the apparent culprit, high on his plinth. It was never proven but student involvement was suspected.

The walkway plaque is the one you can see on this giant plinth, to the lion's right.
