Shaftesbury Antislavery Campaigner Honoured With Blue Plaque

Dorset Council planners have approved an application to recognise Shaftesbury reformer, John Rutter, with a blue plaque.

The marker will be placed on the HSBC bank at The Commons – a building in which, ‘the turbulent Quaker’ once worked.

Sir John Stuttard has campaigned for this dedication and tells us why it is important.
