Wandsworth council has launched a new ‘Green Plaque’ scheme to commemorate famous or historically important people with connections to the borough.
Those to be celebrated include Actress Margaret Rutherford and London’s first black mayor John Archer.
The scheme will also mark historically important places within the borough including Tibbett’s Corner where many notorious highwaymen were hanged, and Ramport Studios, where The Who recorded some of their most famous albums.
The first plaque, of former prime minister Clement Attlee, will be unveiled during the first-ever Wandsworth Heritage Festival, which runs throughout June.
Executive member for environment and leisure, Cllr Sarah McDermott, said: “We’re very proud of our borough and its rich history, and this simple and effective scheme is a way of providing a lasting tribute to people and places of historical importance.”
