This Walthamstow based short walk begins at Vestry House Museum goes past St Mary’s Church and The Ancient House and takes in The Nags Head Pub. The map indicates the site of manhole covers on part of the route. Covers in the road are not included and the route assumes walking on the left hand of the road. The Rat’s Republic refers to the underneath of our city. To the sewers and cables, tunnels and Underground train system. Every day millions of people enter this underworld to travel. The world beneath our feet contains water and gas, our electricity and a proliferation of telecommunication cables.

The Cambridge Blue Plaque Walk is a two hour circular walk that visits 21 of Cambridge’s Blue Plaques celebrating famous names like John Maynard Keynes and Sir Jack Hobbs and notable achievements such as the discovery of DNA.

9780953471287The full colour map highlights the route but allows you to wander off at any point and re-join the trail. There is also a spotter’s guide, to keep children and the eagle-eyed amongst you entertained throughout your journey.

This walk was originally created as part of the Art Language Location festival in 2014 by artist Alban Low. Alongside the 21 established Blue Plaques, Low invited nominations for everyday plaques that celebrated the unsung personalities and events of Cambridge. He printed these as magnetic plaques and placed them throughout the city with help from a keen group of walkers and art enthusiasts. You can see all 50 overleaf and maybe a few still remain on lampposts and railings along the route.

Each artist must find an appropriate venue for their work: the resulting intervention creates a conversation between artist, artwork and location. This extended exhibition aims to punctuate the city with a series of visually exciting and unexpected encounters in which our everyday interactions with text can be explored and challenged.
