GYLHAS has marked important heritage sites in the town since 1981 by facilitating the installation of 95 Blue Plaques on buildings of historical significance in and around Great Yarmouth.
Research for Blue Plaques is carried out by members at the request of individuals or organisations, who fund their manufacture. Each plaque is unveiled at a formal public ceremony to which GYLHAS members (and the general public) are invited.
The Blue Plaques, and consequent press coverage, have increased interest in the town's history and have significantly raised the profile of heritage in the town.
