HAHA. So you liked the Mart - 'ello one Strum? Well spotted :D
Find-later Street is correct.



Grammer one last clue on 29 and will post the answer at half time.

We know its in D/L and something to do with the Christian Brothers but not with Eblana Avenue. The place is no longer there, it went with the heart of the town.
The guy who built this terrace of fine houses also has an hotel named after him and unlike his houses it is still in use.

Well done Strum Gresham Terrace. There is a rumour that the man who built these was a foundling and this fact was mentioned in one of the D/L topics. I have since read that this myth of rags to riches followed three members of that family, G/father, father and son but in each case untrue?

Thanks everybody for joining in, you were great.

You gave the last one away when you mentioned that it went with the heart of the town.
Isn't the Shopping Centre's official address "Gresham House" :cool:

Good guess Grammer but not exactly right. You,re close, within a 5 mile radius!! :D My cryptic clue is that Chiro may well have been in a similar named place during his war travels. ;-) Wont reveal till a few more have had a go.
