Blue Plaque for Margaret Lockwood

Updated: May 5

Margaret Lockwood was one of Britain’s biggest 1940s film stars. She was best known for her roles in The Lady Vanishes (1938) and The Wicked Lady (1945) but also enjoyed a successful stage and television career.

Today (21 November 2018), she was commemorated with a blue plaque at her childhood home, 14 Highland Road in Upper Norwood.

It was a great day!

The star’s great granddaughter Martha Clark (left) unveiled the plaque, and there were representatives from taking Pictures and English Heritage there as well.

As a distant relative, Margaret Lockwood was my grandfather's first cousin, it was great to meet some 'family' members.

The unveiling was followed by a screening of The Lady Vanishes (Hitchcock, 1938) at the gorgeous Everyman Crystal Palace, which had just been refurbished.
