Site: St Marys church Putney (4 memorials)

SW15, Church Square, St Marys Church

The Bridge plaque is on the far side of the wall beside the woman's head in our photo. The jubilee plaque is laid into the terrace between the road and the cross.

The Putney Debates plaque is inside the church, behind our camera, in the cafe area. And in the church we found a small but well-laid out exhibition (which has its own website) on the subject.
