#plaque366 A.J.P Taylor

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!

A "private" plaque in North London for historian A.J.P Taylor…




The first of its kind in the series so far, a plaque placed by a private individual and not an organisation or council – we'll see a couple more of these as the week unfolds.

Historian, broadcaster, journalist and writer, Alan John Percival Taylor was born in Lancashire in 1906 and graduated from Oriel College, Oxford. He wrote biographies of Beaverbrook and Bismark and his history books include Origins of the Second World War (1961) (controversial in its day) and the popular English History 1914-1945 (1965). Thanks to his television lectures, Taylor was a household name in this country. He died in 1990.


Find his plaque on Fordington Road N6…
