Story details

This section is important in that it further verifies the street and identifies why the street was so named. For example, a street could be named after a military person of note who came from the locality or the street could be a battle that local people were involved in.

Please note: this field is limited to 300 characters.

In this section the narrative is written. There is no specific amount of detail as it will solely depend on what the individual did, what the campaign or battle involved or if it was named after a piece of military equipment, the details could be very involved. For example, there is a wealth of information on Oxford Crescent in Upper Hutt which is named after the Airspeed Oxford Bomber of WW2.


Please include any photographs, diagrams, maps or charts below.
