Blue & Green
Plaque Scheme

Commemorating Our Forest Heroes 

The Forest of Dean has seen many people play a huge part in our history, and Foresters’ Forest is recognising some of these local figures with a plaque.

Our Green & Blue Plaque scheme will recognise notable historic Foresters who died over 20 years ago, that lived or worked in the Forest and who made an important contribution to the Forest’s natural, built or cultural heritage. 

  • A Blue Plaque is a permanent sign installed in a public place to commemorate a link between that location and a nationally famous person or event. 
  • A Green Plaque is very similar but it commemorates a link between that location and a person famous within the Forest (but not nationally well known).

We previously requested public nominations for individuals who should be proudly remembered within the Forest in this way and have a shortlist of 18 nominees. 

We now need your help deciding the final 10 Foresters’ who should be remembered with a plaque. 

Your votes will help identify five blue plaques and five green plaques.
