    Clive, I turned in to Lebanon road on Thursday only to find the road was closed (Nothing new there) Friday, I tried again, the road was open, pulled in to the Longstaff estate and took a wander. Asked a local walking through and he showed me where the plaque is. Sadly I had forgot my camera that day, unbelievable !! Anyway, I now know where it is. Many thanks for your help. Cheers ! :)
