The Makers of London's Iconic Blue Plaques

Anyone who has spent times in London is familiar with the iconic Blue Plaques that mark where the famous lived and/or worked across the capital. In 1866 the Society of Arts (which later became the Royal Society of Arts) founded what is now known as the Blue Plaques scheme.
Frank and Sue Ashworth of London Plaques in Cornwall, South East England have been creating them for the charity since 1984. This video shows us what goes into creating each of the ceramics.
