A London commemorative plaque for every day in 2016. 

The plaques are selected from all walks of life, and all points of the London compass – and I'm taking requests too!

Adam writes… A little bit of "housekeeping" in today's instalment. Earlier in the year I missed a couple of days in the series (naughty me) so to ensure that the plaque total hits 366 by December 31st 2016, here's my first multiple plaque post. Scientific business this blogging…

Hugh Jenkins and Gavin Ewart at Kenilworth Court, Putney.

Hugh Jenkins, Labour MP for Putney from 1964 - 1979, was Arts Minister in Harold Wilson's government from 1974-76 and was chair of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

The poet Gavin Ewart once had his work banned from W.H Smith due to its erotic content. He won the Cholmondeley Award, the annual prize for poetry from the Society of Authors in 1974. 

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
