A memorial stone to Sir Roger Bannister CH CBE was dedicated in Westminster Abbey on Tuesday 28th September 2021. Sir Roger was the first man to run a mile in under four minutes and later became a distinguished neurologist.

The Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr David Hoyle, led the dedication service, which was attended by family, friends and former colleagues. The new memorial is in the Abbey’s north nave, the area known as Scientists’ Corner, because Sir Roger always maintained that his achievements as a neurologist far outshone his time on the track.
