The Forgotten Women of Wakefield

Forgotten Women Wake

FWW Blue Plaque Trail

Through the Forgotten Women of Wakefield project we have been able to see the beating heart of our city’s hidden history. On this page, we hope to give to you an insight into the history we are uncovering through an easy to use interactive map. Remember, we’re adding to this map all the time, so check back often!

Dream Time Creative has also worked outside of Wakefield centre to erect blue plaques commemorating:

Baroness Alice Bacon – located at Normanton Town Hall and unveiled as part of International Women’s Day 2018.
Elizabeth Moxon – located on Finkle Street in Pontefract and unveiled in March of 2019.
