Sir Cliff Richard - Elstree and Borehamwood Station

Erection date: 2008

Inscription

This plaque honours Sir Cliff Richard OBE, 50 years a music legend, Britain's greatest hit-maker and star of Elstree films:
Summer Holiday
The Young Ones
Wonderful Life
Take Me High
Serious Charge (MGM)

Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council
2008

Site: Elstree and Borehamwood Station (11 memorials)

WD6, Allum Lane, Station forecourt

The plaques are around the station forecourt, either on frames or laid into the pavement. The gold lettering on the marble effect on the pavement plaques makes photography difficult.

Although there is nothing on the memorials themselves we believe that the British Film Institute was involved in erecting those representing a cell from a roll of film so we have added it as a creator for those memorials.
