London Remembers

There's a fascinating London map to browse: London Remembers, which includes 1799 memorials throughout the city. The subjects are as varied as (or more than) you'd expect: Deptford appears for the plaque commemorating Dire Straits' first gig.

The site isn't complete yet, and coverage is best in central London with the south-east currently rather sparse. With its ambitious approach of including plaques, statues, monuments and so on, they accept that 'it's an aim we don't think we will ever achieve but we will enjoy the attempt.'
