Tree: Sir Peter Medawar tree
This tree, commemorating Sir Peter Medawar, OM, FRS, Nobel Laureate, 1915 - 1987, was donated by the Margaret Pyke Centre and Trust and planted by his wife, Jean, on 15th December 1987 in the presence of Councillor Mrs Terence Mallinson of Westminster City Council. It replaces a tree on the same site which was lost in the Great Storm of 16 - 17 October 1987.
The plaque is in front of a tree stump, so that accounts for the "lost" tree but it is mid-way between a holly and a deciduous tree so it's not clear which is the replacement. Our money's on the deciduous one.
