Historic Place-marker Scheme

Across the country in our streets, villages, towns and cities, momentous events have taken place.

  • Celebrate discoveries & inventions in your local area
  • Learn about events that have shaped your town

We are designing a new scheme to let communities identify, mark, and celebrate the spots where history has been made.

Pilot over the next three years

We'll pilot the new scheme over the next three years, with research, community collaboration and a design competition in its early stages.
