Bob Marley house in London to be marked with blue plaque

The house in Chelsea where Bob Marley lived for a year in 1977 while his band The Wailers finished their Exodus album is to get a blue commemorative plaque from English Heritage.

It was during his time in London that he referred to the city as his “second base” and he and his bandmates often played football at the nearby Battersea park.

Other blue plaques to be awarded this year include the building at Butler’s Wharf where punk filmmaker Derek Jarman lived and worked.

The blue plaques panel called Marley a “cultural icon who blazed a trail for other black artists”.
