London Blue

Thanks to Londonist for highlighting another great London memorial map, created by Roy Reed - of English Heritage and Southwark blue plaques. Deptford doesn't seem to have any of these, but nearby there's one to publisher John Tallis on New Cross Road and another to Sir George Livesey on the Old Kent Road. Explore for yourself here.

Londonist has a mapping project of its own: readers have contributed hand-drawn maps each offering a personal view of the capital. They'll go on display in the Museum of London later in the year; in the meantime, you can enjoy The Fields of New Cross and others online.

Although not English Heritage, there is a burgundy plaque dedicated to Thankful Sturdee on Bolden Street that can be seen on Google Maps.
