Southwark Council

The London Borough of Southwark was created as an amalgamation of the Metropolitan Boroughs of Southwark, Camberwell and Bermondsey.
Southwark council annually invites proposals for new plaques from which a short list of nominations is produced. The winners are voted for by 'The People'. Whatever you think of that idea we hope you approve, as we do, the variety of plaque styles used by Southwark. Looking back Southwark probably regret it and would have preferred a 'house style' but we enjoy the diversity.

Londonist brought Southwark's historical maps to our attention. Irresistible to mapophiles.

2018: Southwark News wrote "The Blue Plaque scheme, run by the ‘News’ and Southwark Heritage in association with Southwark Council, commenced in 2002 and by September 2008 40 plaques had already been erected in the borough, with Sir Henry’s being the first to be put up on the Old Kent Road."

2019: Southwark News explains the origins of Southwark's blue plaques.
