These plaques were generously photographed for us, at great risk of life and limb, by Matt Brown of Londonist on a privileged visit to the normally inaccessible roofs and ledges of the Cathedral. Not the most interesting plaques we've ever seen but probably the most inaccessible. Some of our transcription is a little hazy, in particular the first name initials for Coles, Dunne and Townsend.

Members of the war-time St Pauls Watch belong to the small group of people who may have been up to this roof. Read more about the Watch and how St Paul's survived the war at A London Inheritance.

2019: Ian Visits reported on the '“Great Restoration of the 1920s” which strengthened the dome.

Site: Resurgam & recast roof (2 memorials)

EC4, Cannon Street, St Paul's Cathedral

Bonus fact: On the up-river side of Vauxhall Bridge there’s a statue holding a lovely little miniature St Paul’s Cathedral. The statue, by Pomeroy, is one of eight on the bridge and represents, of course, architecture. London Walking Tours have a good photo.
