Blue Plaque for Margaret Lockwood
Updated: Jul 16, 2020
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.
