The Marchmont Association is delighted to announce the forthcoming unveiling of a commemorative plaque to James Burton, who was responsible for building much of the Foundling Hospital, Bedford and Skinners' Company Estates between 1790 and 1820.

The plaque has been installed on his original Bloomsbury home, where he lived whilst building Guilford Street and the south side of Brunswick Square. After his extraordinary exploits in Bloomsbury, he went on to build the villas in Regent's Park and several of the grand Nash designed terraces, working in partnership with his son, Decimus. Together they went on to build much of Regent Street and the new town of St Leonard's on Sea.

We have tracked down a few surviving relatives of the great man, who will be unveiling the plaque in conjunction with Burton's biographer and the Mayor of Camden.

We hope you will be able to join us for this important day in the history of our area.

We are grateful to the University of London for allowing us to install this plaque on their building, and for sponsoring it.

Additional Info: Wednesday 6th June at 2pm, on the corner of Lansdowne Terrace and Guilford Street WC1
