BLUE PLAQUE GUIDE

CELEBRATING OUR HERITAGE

In celebration and commemoration of our rich historical past and heritage, Pontefract and District have 33 blue plaques currently on display.

Pontefract Civic Society has also helped provide plaques outside of the town, on request. If you have suggestions for further blue plaques and potential funding sources to cover the cost of purchase and erection, then these can be considered. View our project page for further information on future Blue Plaques.
