Bridgwater Blue Plaques

Phase Two March 2007

In Phase Two, the Civic Society has affixed ten plaques to various buildings of Bridgwater. Not only are buildings commemorated in this phase, but also people and a long-standing firm of Ironmongers. The project has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The plaques have been individually crafted by Leander Architectural.
