Site: Marc Bolan shrine (10 memorials)
SW13, Queen's Ride
This site has evolved over the years from flowers place around the tree to become the shrine that it is today. The steps were probably introduced to give visitors somewhere safe to stand, off the busy road. Opposite the tree a sturdy notice board has been erected on which fans can attach their drawings, personal messages, etc. The bust, in 2013, has been wrapped in a black feather boa with some purple tinsel, and decorated with a few white swans at the front.
The risers of the steps provide space for small brass plaques - memorials for people related to Bolan, such as members of T Rex. Plaques for Took, Currie, June Bolan, Finn and TAG are all on the top riser. Dines occupies the first plaque space on the next riser down.
