Researching the Plaques

The Blue Plaques project for shop window display in Penge gathers apace. A working party of seven is busy researching and negotiating past stories and histories of Penge businesses and shops. We have discovered lists of all the shops in Penge High Street from 1878. That’s the easy bit. Now which ones do we celebrate? And what are their beginning and end dates?

Sadly, owing to the pandemic, our efforts to research and install the plaques have been put on hold. But we still hope to install the first 10 plaques sometime in 2021.
