Celebrating our Heritage Enhancing our Environment Shaping our Future

Blue Plaques

The Society commissions and erects blue plaques around the city  to commemorate a link between that location and a famous person or event, serving as a historical marker.

The first plaque commissioned by the Society  commemorating  Benjamin Banks, the violin maker was unveiled in July 1989, this is the only green plaque, the colour for future plaques being changed to blue.  There are currently 21 plaques around the city with  more to come in 2016.   The latest plaque, unveiled in September 2015,  marks the site of one of the three factories  in Salisbury requistioned for the manufacture of Spitfire aircraft in WW2.    For further information on these and other plaques please visit salisburyplaques.org
