Green Plaque Award for Angel Yard
The latest Green Plaque to be unveiled is in honour of Angel Yard, where Ladybird Books were printed and published from 1915-1973.
Angel Yard was the location of Wills and Hepworth Printers. Established in 1873 as commercial printers, the company went on to produce, market and distribute Ladybird Books which became famous around the world, establishing Loughborough as the ‘home of Ladybird Books’.
Angel Yard is the first Plaque from the second round of the scheme to be unveiled by the County Council.
Nominated by ‘Love Loughborough’
