Well done Rambler,
Thanks for the vote aristo, I only realised that The poet Robert William Service has a Blue Plaque in honour of his work in a street in Preston where I live. It's on a road called Christian Road which is the the same road as Preston Royal Mail Delivery Post Office Dept, wgich I must add is who I worked for for nearly 14 years. So I must have walked past that Blue Plaque over a thousand times and never noticed it.
What a superb coincidence to read about him being so local to my own roots.
I will pop down to see the Plaque next week when I come in to Preston City on the train and report back to you about it.
