Homes adorned with a blue plaque have stood as a testament to the UK’s diverse history since the first plaque was erected in 1867. That plaque was designed to commemorate the poet Lord Byron’s birthplace at 24 Holles Street, Cavendish Square.

However, blue plaque homes also form a fantastic collection of period properties throughout England, ranging from the Victorian era and beyond.

Here is a selection of the finest blue plaque homes currently up for sale.

Charlton House, Hitchin, Hertfordshire

The former home of engineer and inventor Sir Henry Bessemer was born at Charlton House 200 years ago.

Sir Bessemer’s steam-powered machines played a key role in the development of Victorian Britain, enabling steam production to really take off.

Now back on the market after 32 years, the seven-bedroom home is a short commute into London.

Brookhouse Farm, Greenmount, Manchester

Buyers can enjoy the splendour of this extensively modernised early 17th century, five-bedroom farmhouse, complete with attached barn and cottage.

The farmhouse’s blue plaque commemorates the life of Henry Wood, imprisoned for a number years due to his Quaker faith, who fought with Oliver Cromwell against Charles I.

Wildwood Terrace, NW3, London

The former home of historian Nikolaus Pevsner, whose county-by-county guides 'The Buildings of England’ live on as authorities on architecture some two decades after his death, is situated next to Hampstead Heath in North London.

Brook Green, West London

This handsome five-bedroom, grade II listed Victorian property in south-west London is the former home of Sir Frank Short, the print maker renowned for his depictions of the British landscape. An 89-foot back garden only serves to add to the property’s charms.
