Marc Bolan’s Rock Shrine
Marc Bolan’s Rock Shrine is a memorial to Marc Bolan, the lead singer of the glam-rock band T. Rex, located in Barnes, on the site where he died in a car crash on September 16, 19771. The shrine is a place of pilgrimage for fans of Marc Bolan and T. Rex. It began as a small tribute to the musician but has grown over the years to include a memorial stone, a bust of Bolan, and several plaques honouring other members of T. Rex who have passed away. The site is also known as the “Bolan Tree” because of the sycamore tree that Bolan’s car crashed into.
