Becoming a Pastwalker - Scoring
Bagging is an old sporting term given new life by walkers and climbers in the Scottish Highlands who indulge in 'Munro Bagging’ to claim each mountain ascent. Our unique London village walks includes many distinctive plaques which can be 'bagged' by the intrepid walker. However, in order to keep this 'sport' under some sort of control we have set up some rules and guidance.
Plaque scores are determined solely by their rarity and age and not by the importance of the person who has been commemorated.
Old RSA or early LCC plaques 3 points each.
City of London or English Heritage Blue plaques 2 points each.
Local Authority plaques 2 points each.
Society and Friends plaques 1 point each.
Other plaques 1 point each.
Only plaques approved by heritage.london count towards a bagging score.
Proposals for inclusion in the listing are welcome but our decision is final.
Monuments are not normally included but there are some exceptions,
such as Mozart's charming statue near Sloane Square
and Dick Whittington's cat on Highgate Hill.
