The online home for all things Brockley (SE4), Deptford, Ladywell, Lewisham and New Cross
In a slightly similar vein to a previous edition of I Spy, whereabouts in Brockley is this plaque?
Eastern Road (the dead-end slope) going up to Prenderghasts from Adelaide.
number 19/21 to be exact. Just been for a run to check ;)
I'm not the first but was also going to say Eastern Road, right by the side of the park.
When you recently highlighted the Jim Connell plaque, somebody complained that Lewisham had wasted public money on leftists (Connell wrote the Red Flag) and that they would never do the same for somebody right wing. Well this plaque, put up by Lewisham at about the same time, certainly gives the lie to that! Williamson, best known for Tarka the Otter, was a disgusting anti-semite and prominent meber of the British Union of Fascists.
I've been meaning to post on this for a while, so now I have - see Brockley's most famous fascist.
Ooops Oh dear.
Well, you learn something everyday. And I thought he was jut a cuddly animal lover. Mind you, Hitler was vegetarian.I remember that Brockley Primary school used to do Henry Williamson activities on a yearly basis. I wonder if they still do?
