I would say Quernmore or Abbeystead, I grew up in Lancaster, but it is the Jubilee Tower. Your go.

I recall visiting the Jubilee Tower many years ago with my parents.

Name and location of this, please.

King's Norton Stop Lock - near the junction of the Stratford and Worcester & Birmingham canals?

I live near there... and by strange coincidence, looking over recent clues, I have also lived not far from the Quernmore Jubilee Tower, and at Crank (with its Caverns) near the Billinge Lump.

Yes it's the Guillotine Stop Lock at King's Norton. It's slightly unnerving navigating beneath the blade of a guillotine :shock: :shock:

Your turn.

OK, Tim, I'll post to keep the thread moving.

"All roads lead to Rome". But where is this sign? (The most incriminating giveaway items have been redacted).

In spite of Hadrian on the sign, I think it might be Ravenglass.

It's only 1127 miles from Ravenglass to Rome, apparently :)

It is indeed Bewcastle, the sign pointing to Bewcastle church and the Anglo-Saxon Bewcastle Cross.

Your turn.
