Plaque on Obelisk, Pole Hill, Chingford, London E4
Plaque on obelisk on Pole Hill commemorating T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) who, until conveyed to the Corporation of London in September 1930, owned 18 acres of land at the top of Pole Hill. He had originally intended to erect a house with his friend Vyvyan Richards in which to print fine books including his classic "Seven Pillars of Wisdom". This never came to pass, although until 1922 Richards lived here in a hut called "Cloisters".
