Open Plaques

Open Plaques is a community-based service started in 2009 which documents, catalogues and promotes commemorative plaques (often blue and round) installed on buildings and other public landmarks in the UK and beyond.

The project aims to bring the people-powered history the plaques encapsulate to life - and to a larger audience - by making its website and database the definitive and most comprehensive resource about these historical markers.

As well as telling you where they are, we aim to tell you who's commemorated on them, what those people are notable for, and what their connection is with the places where their plaques are installed.

In turn, the data and resources produced by the project aim for wide distribution and re-use by others, and are available for free to all under a Public Domain declaration.
