Rayleigh Heritage Plaques

To help residents and visitors learn more about our lovely town a number of

 ‘Heritage Plaques’ can be found at various locations.

Rayleigh Town Council  has produced a

super leaflet which includes a self guided walk  viewing these historic locations.

The Council have an ongoing programme of further suitable sites and

propose to erect 2 new plaques each year.

The latest to be erected commemorate the Regal Cinema and the Area of Correction – both seen here.


A small selection of the other Plaques are shown here.


In addition 4 other plaques were commissioned by the Rayleigh Historical Society in the

early 1970s (2 are shown here) and were made at Sweyne School.

Some are in need of restoration and we hope to be able to raise funds to undertake this work.
