Think it could be a part of Wales Guy but its definitely not run of the mill 😉

^^^^ Good shout Stephen.

It's definitely part of Wales, but a unique one that's within easy reach of Hertfordshire for a day trip and, funnily enough, there is a Mill involved too. :wink: :wink:

^^^ I agree with Stephen. :)

Trust a forumite to guess it so quickly. Now that you have resurrected the thread Guy, one Cam but hope that a few others Lode the thread with pics, often taken from strange Angles.

Never been there, but worked it out from the “Menaingful” puns!

Seems like the game is up on this one.

As has correctly been sussed out it is Anglesey Abbey and Lode Mill, a National Trust property, nowhere near North Wales but a few miles Northeast of Cambridge. :grin: :grin:

Yes, we had a great day out. Showers of rain held out until it was time to leave and we had a pleasant time walking around the grounds and house (Abbey).

I'll put some more photos up later in the 'Pictures from Walkers' thread.

So let’s try this one – it’s extremely simple. Take a picture of your watch on top of an image of some famous place (please don’t make it too difficult) and see if people can guess where the location in the photo is.

No need to take turns over this, just post photos or answers whenever you want to. It’ll probably be chaotic but it could be fun.

If you happen to have a recognisable live-action watch shot taken on location, by all means put it in.

Here’s the one of my UN that I posted this morning.

Just seen this thread and I have to say…superb, what a great idea. Bravo and standby, Steve. 👍😱

^^^^ Thanks Nigel.

I'm not able to offer a 'live' suggestion, as I'm not going out at the moment (I should have been in the Peak District last weekend but had to cancel).

Is anyone else able to offer a teaser?

Well this is how it was done in the olden days, an early version of an NPI. :)

I've not got a Scooby Doo, Neil. Sorry.

However, I was out and about today in a potentially much more recognisable location.

Correct Steve, but then I rather expected you'd get it. :wink: :wink:

Anyone else?
