#plaque366 Tony Trude

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!

One of my all-time favourite London plaques. The story behind it? I'd be a liar if I told you one. All I have is my own, fanciful idea of Mr Trude and his ways and means. I picture him as a latter day Ratty from Wind In The Willows, shabby genteel, perhaps irascible, but good company when he got going.

That's why I love this plaque. You can make up a story for yourself.

Here's a map to the source of the River Wandle. Follow it to the Thames and you'll find the plaque pictured above…

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
