Not an easy plaque to find, and if you don't like shopping centres, not a pleasant hunt. We believe our pin is in exactly the right place and we hope our photo makes it easier for those who come after us. The exterior that can be seen in the photo is a sort of internal courtyard.

Why, oh why, oh why, didn't they erect the roof structure first, and then the plaque? If you tell us they did, we'll weep.
