A blue plaque is a permanent sign installed in a public place to commemorate a link between that location and a famous person or event in world history and are traditionally erected to remember that event. The plaque is made from a material that should be able to stand the test of time.

 

      They are made by Wards of Bristol.  Cast bronze is a favourite medium for plaques due to its long lasting properties and its classic look.
