That's the Robster to a tee but he was not born in Brentford, just lived and worked there for quite a long time, he was the resident poet in the Waterman's theatre there for a couple of years or so, and I believe it was Parsons Green he was born in. All of his early books were based in Brentford, As Ankh Morpork had the Broken/Mended Drum Brentford had the Flying Swan :mrgreen:

And I believe Penge is a lovely place, but I've never been there.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
