I doubt you would pinpoint an exact place - it is Lancashire South Lakes

My post with this postmark comes from Morecambe/Heysham - Lancaster- Dalton in Furness, though I am only assuming those people post in their home towns

I think Lancashire and South Lakes is for the Lancaster post code area

I am fairly certain that it is exactly what it says - the whole of Lancashire and the South Lakes area. I think my own area Blackpool/Preston has that postmark but I have destroyed any envelopes we had.
