That part of London has changed so much in the last few years, Guy - but still the (very late) Victorian building opposite is certainly a sight for sore eyes :)

Any moor clues?

At the moment it is a rather limited field contributing!

Still no guesses for mine from a week or so ago…

@nbg @Amor Vincit Omnia @BobMunro

You're all on the right (green & red) lines gents (a bonus point if you understand the significance of this). Top notch. :clap: :clap:

I think my next location ought to be made a touch more difficult. :wink: :wink:

Correct part of the country, but not the Eden Project.

Sculptures everywhere…

^^^ That could be the Devon Sculpture Park, and I presume a Henry Moore sculpture in your first pic (though to be honest it doesn’t look much like a Henry Moore :lol: )...
Maybe I mistook your ‘moor’ reference...

@Bahnstormer_vRS Green & red? District & Central?

@missF The “moor” was part of the answer to Guy’s location.

For the benefit of all to state I was at Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, London, EC1V yesterday.

. . . . .
Kind off on the right Track, Steve, by referring to the London Underground but the Green Line cryptic clue is actually this, from Moorfield's website;-

Travel information

By tube

Northern Line (Bank branch) to Old Street station. Come out of subway 4 and follow the green painted line to the building.

The Red Line is a line marking out the 'No Smoking' zone in the vicinity of ther Main Entrance.

If you've been here before, you'll probably recognise the vista...

@scooter
It is indeed. We stayed a couple of miles away and ended up visiting the cafe for lunch on a rainy day and breakfast on a day when South West Water decided to screw up the day by dumping sh*t in the sea, meaning no swimming on the local beaches for a couple of days.
