Sir Thomas Foxwell Buxton in Brick Lane
Sir Thomas Foxwell Buxton in Brick Lane
The blue plaque marks the residence of the anti-slavery campaigner and MP who in 1823 formed the Society for the Extinction of the Slave Trade, aimed at total abolition. In 1824 he succeeded William Wilberforce as head of the anti-slavery party in parliament, continuing the struggle, until the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833 freed all enslaved people in the British Empire. Buxton Street runs east from here.
