@Ian Mc

Knowing the area in which you live Ian, and references you've made in the past (I think), shall we try with Lake Windermere?

Heading north out of Lakeside, perhaps.

Spot on there, just as you say, little North of Lakeside.

A watch heavily inspired by the 70s, a time when the importance of this place started to become more widely known.

Wasn't too difficult by the looks of it!

They also had on show a watch of their most famous ex-employee. My 5 year old saw it first and said "Daddy, Daddy a watch for you". Didn't know whether to be proud or ashamed.

^^^ Two buildings in one shot, although one's reflection is rather "un peu flou" too.

Without giving the answer away explicitly, I reckon you're standing on Gaol Hill.

But as you know, it’s not a prison. 15th century building, so therefore quite contemporary with the Guild of Mastersingers. But not in Nürnberg. :lol:

Part of it used to be a prison, but not anymore. 15th century, as you say, but the clock is a lot newer (c1850).

Does anyone else know where we're talking about? Or care? :lol:

Ah yes, the dungeon. Interesting in the light of current events that the building reflected in my watch superseded it in one of its main roles. That was in 1938, when King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited the old building before officially opening the new one.
