Ted Hughes lived here, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire


This is where former Poet Laureate Ted Hughes lived from the age of 7 until he won a scholarship at Cambridge aged 17.

A plaque adorns the house since it was put up in April 2013, 15 years after his death. Artist Ashley Jackson, said: "I think it is long overdue that he is honoured with this plaque. He is one of the greatest poets this country has ever produced."

Did you know...

Did you know ... that locals want to erect a bronze statue to Hughes near here, and set up a tourist Hughes trail here too?
