Back where it belongs

The plaque bearing details of the Anglo-Saxon King Edgar is back where it belongs – on the external east wall of Bath Abbey.

This was the site where – in 973 AD – the first king of all England was crowned in a ceremony unchanged since his day and soon to be reenacted with the coronation of Charles the Third.

The late Queen Elizabeth visited Bath in 1973 to mark a thousand years of monarchy. We are now up to a thousand and fifty.

The plaque was taken down as it had lost a security screw and also the wooden backing was failing.

It’s mounted now on new wood with new and decorated security screws in place.
