Plaque

Old Cock Tavern - Fleet Street

Inscription

{Same as on the lost plaque but without the heading.}

Site: Old Cock Tavern and the Society of Industrial Designers (3 memorials)

EC4, Fleet Street, 22, Ye Olde Cock Tavern

We photographed this plaque in Sept 2003, but on returning to photograph the building in March 2008, the plaque had gone.

2021: we returned to find a new, brass, plaque in place with the same wording, bar the heading.  So we've added that to this page.

This section lists the other memorials at the same location as the memorial on this page:
